The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland

RCAHMS celebrated the Millennium with an exhibition of photographs and drawings selected from the National Monuments Record of Scotland which reflect, through the nation’s buildings, monuments and sculpture, the history of religious worship in Scotland since the advent of Christianity. The exhibition was launched in December 1999 at RCAHMS in Edinburgh and is currently travelling throughout Scotland.
