Transatlantic Tradesmen

At its peak, the Aberdeen granite industry exported not just finished stone but also experienced quarrymen and stonecutters to America.  In this evening lecture, Professor Marjory Harper of Aberdeen University takes a closer look at the motivations and experiences of these transatlantic tradesmen.

Doors open 6.00 pm.  Aberdeen Maritime Museum is on Shiprow AB11 5BY.  The venue is fully wheelchair accessible and a portable induction loop is available, please ask on arrival at the venue.
