History - From Neo to now

4th September 2009 at 01:00

Schools are being encouraged to visit a new exhibition which details the history of Scotland's largest city. Foundation Glasgow - the Growth of a City is a free short film which explores the development of Glasgow from Neolithic times through to the changes projected to take place for the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

The exhibition has been developed by Scottish Government agency Registers of Scotland (RoS) using its historical records.

The short film has been commissioned to celebrate Homecoming 2009. Lasting 13 minutes, it takes viewers from the birth of the city, St Mungo's arrival, the rise of the tobacco lords and shipbuilding to Glasgow's modern history.

The exhibition, until September 13, is at the Registers of Scotland's Customer Service Centre, 9 George Square, Glasgow. Viewings are half- hourly from 10am-3.30pm. T: 0141 251 0993 (from 9am-5pm); E: ros@adeptmg.com; www.ros.gov.uk.
