The Scots in London Talk With Rory Lamb

18th Jan, 2024
Renfield Centre, Glasgow

Rory Lamb, PhD researcher at the University of Edinburgh, explores the forgotten London townhouses of Scotland's absentee landlords. Drawn to London's West End after the Union in 1707, they enjoyed the lifestyle of the prosperous metropolitan elite, packing their residences with luxury goods and acting as architectural patrons. His talk discusses the role of these buildings in the formation of British identity among eighteenth-century Scots.
