In this small exhibition we show how Scott drew upon real historical objects for inspiration, placing objects alongside Scott's words, and the stories in which they feature. While you view these fascinating objects, you can listen to an actor reading extracts from these tales.
The juxtaposition of real objects and Scott’s words will help us understand how these amazing material things were so intrinsic to Scott’s writing process.
