Presented by the Scottish Heritage Center, the annual symposium will take place April 5 -7 on the University’s campus.
“Our symposium has provided a forum for those interested in Scottish history, culture and genealogy to learn from top scholars in their respective fields,” said Bill Caudill, director of the Scottish Heritage Center. “Since beginning in 1989, our symposium has gained national recognition as a leader in the exploration of Scottish culture.”
Lord Rector of the University of St. Andrews Scotland and President of the Court Alistair Moffat will start the symposium April 5 with his presentation The Clans – How They Came Into Being and Why They No Longer Exist. He will present Scotland’s DNA on Saturday morning.
