I will be speaking about that well-known but widely misunderstood aspect of local change = peat moss clearance. But also about peat moss survival and conservation.
Other speakers include Chris Smout, the Historiographer Royal for Scotland, talking about pollution of the Forth (based on work for his forthcoming book) and Stephen Digney, describing the King's Knot as a royal garden and recreation site of the late medieval period.
This year's Forth Naturalist and Historian will also be launched at the event.
