For the second year, World Heritage Day in Scotland has been celebrated in style by the community arts project “Shadows of our Ancestors”.
All of our contributing groups, from the five World Heritage sites in Scotland, have created new work in photography, film, music, poetry, physical theatre and sculpture. The work has all been inspired by their own World Heritage site but with a distinct and common focus on the year AD 142 – the commencement of the building of the Antonine Wall, the final frontier of the Roman Empire.
In 2012 Shadows of our Ancestors brought the World Heritage Day celebrations to Croy and the site of the Antonine Wall and hope that this might be the beginning of a journey across Scotland and future celebrations at Edinburgh, Orkney, New Lanark and St Kilda.
Here’s a selection of some fantastic pictures of World Heritage Day at Croy by Florencia Garcia Chafuen. More can be seen on the blog page and we will continue to add images and comments there as they come in.
