Beschreibung

Monumental Edinburgh illustrates the history of the capital city of Scotland through its statues and monuments - a permanent display in a city-wide museum. The book lists them by area for easy reference while out and about and explains the stories behind the lesser-known figures and events commemorated around the city. These monuments record the contribution that Scottish personalities have made to architecture, town planning, philosophy, politics, medicine, science, poetry and literature. The characters and events immortalised by architects, sculptors and artisans in stone and bronze, played significant parts in the Scottish Enlightenment, the British Empire and global culture. They are now an intrinsic part of Edinburgh as a World Heritage Site. Jack Gillon and Paul McAuley have both been involved in planning and conservation aspects of statues and monuments in Edinburgh.
