Merlin in Moffat
We're holding a Friends of Moffat Book Events evening at Brodies in Altrive Place to share ideas about our Oct 15/16 2011 celebration of Scotland's Family Tree. What is it defines who we are ? Alistair Moffat has been looking at our DNA, with the conclusion that 'we are all immigrants'; so we fall back on acculturation myths with the help of Count Nikolai Tolstoy, and consider the earth beneath our feet with peat expert Ruth Tittensor with whom we will be exploring Merlin, after whom a cave is named on Hart Fell, and the peat laid down when the climate changed and the trees fell 5,000 years ago. NB There are many faces in this picture: can you see them?
