Govan Stones

One of the information boards inside Govan Old Parish Church.

“Govan Young follows a group of local schoolchildren as they learn of the Viking invasion of central Scotland and the subsequent establishment of the medieval kingdom of Strathclyde. How will the children react when they discover that Vikings and kings walked on the ground below their feet?”

This 30-minute film shows how young people can become aware of – and fascinated by – the history and archaeology of their locality. It’s a hugely inspiring piece of work and has deservedly been nominated for various awards.

The link below will take you to Vimeo, where you can watch the film.
