About Grant Buttars

Grant Buttars, Deputy University Archivist


So, what have our collections to say about the referendum? More than you may think.  The Referendum is not an isolated event but sits within a historic time-line. Our collections intersect with that timeline at numerous points, directly and indirectly, and have a lot to say about the context of how we got to where we are now.

On Referendum day, join Dr Joseph Marshall (Head of Special Collections) and Grant Buttars (Deputy University Archivist) for a light-hearted look at some of these collection items.  The session runs from 14.00-16.00.

To close, a hint of what might be included.
