To celebrate the bicentenary of the Bell Rock Lighthouse, the National Archives of Scotland is offering five additional dates for upper primary schools to participate in its free workshop ‘The Flannan Lighthouse Mystery’.
Investigate the mysterious disappearance of the Light Keepers from Flannan in December 1900. Using evidence preserved in the National Archives of Scotland, draw your own conclusions about what actually happened.
To book your workshop in Edinburgh or to arrange two 45 minutes Glow Meet sessions, visit the Scottish Archives for Schools website <http://www.scottisharchivesforschools.org/workshops.asp> .
The National Archives of Scotland is also running a Flannan Isles Activity Day for families on Wednesday 16 February 2011 in New Register House. The free two hour sessions offer families the opportunity to use material held by the NAS to find out about life on Scottish lighthouses and stories from the past. Pre-booking is essential for these sessions.
