Some additional catalogues relating to Ayrshire associations, businesses and individuals have been added to the website! Making catalogues available online is an on-going project so keep an eye out for more of them over the new few months. We also have a new addition to our team and they will introduce themselves very soon……..
Recently at Ayrshire Archives, our Assistant Archivists and Graduate Trainee paid a visit to Rozelle Park to view the Remembrance Woodland which was created as part of South Ayrshire Council’s World War I Centenary Commemorations 2014-2018. This project was established in honour of the 100th anniversary of World War I and includes a range of sculptures and carvings which have become key features of the Remembrance Woodland. Also situated within this area is the recently laid memorial stone dedicated to Lieutenant Robert Shankland, born in Ayr. He was awarded the Victoria Cross on 26 October 1917, an event recently commemorated in Ayrshire. Take a look at our previous blog post to find out more about the Robert Shankland Memorial Stone.
