Auld Reekie and the Dear Green Place

29th June 2001 at 01:00
Nineteenth-century Edinburgh and Glasgow were cities of conspicuous social contrasts. A CD-Rom, Auld Reekie and the Dear Green Place, enables students of 12 and above to explore many of those fierce contradictions. Using a rich database compiled from two census reports, with maps, photographs and other demographic information such as baptism records, it suggests countless themes for investigation. Auld Reekie and the Dear Green Place (with accompanying pack of documents) costs pound;15 from Department of Social Studies Education, 76 Southbrae Drive, Glasgow G13 1PP. Telfax: 0141 950 3395.
