A Story Of The Cateran Trail In 100 Objects


Inspired by Neil MacGregor’s History of the World in 100 objects, this project, part of the Cateran’s Common Wealth initiative, invites the people who live and work around the Cateran Trail and those who visit, to propose objects that they believe tell an important part of the story of this part of Scotland across history and into the present day.

wired catTypically, an object is a material thing that can be seen and touched, but we are broadening that definition to include places, landscapes and people as well as objects relating to them.

If you have an idea of something that should be included, click on this link here which will enable you to upload images and some text about your proposal, why you or your family or friends value it and why you think it should be included in the final 100 objects chosen.

The final set of 100 objects will be decided by a panel of local people who you can read about here.  They will then be documented and further interpreted through a range of activities and events including four talks, a new Exhibition for Alyth Museum with an accompanying booklet which will open in the summer of 2017 and new digital lesson plans designed especially for primary school children.

You can read more about the three themes of people, place and landscape here.
