Past Scottish Voices Archive to Go Online

Posted by admin on Dec 9, 2010

More than 15,000 recordings from Scotland’s past are going online as part of a new digital archive. The recordings, many of which date back almost 80 years, are drawn from three different collections and include songs, poems and stories.
