A year of progress

Looking back on the last day of 2013, I reckon this has been a good year for early medieval Govan. Awareness of the town’s history during the ‘Dark Ages’ has certainly increased, not only in Govan itself but further afield.

Highlights of the year include:

– the unveiling of the re-displayed stones at the old parish church, a project described in a post at my Senchus blog

– renewed local interest in the long-lost Doomster Hill, ceremonial mound of the kings of Strathclyde, via excellent work undertaken by the Some Thing Is Missing project team

– a new heritage trail exploring the town’s ancient past through the legendary Thirteen Treasures Of Govan

. . . . . all of which bodes well for 2014.
