Govan's Hidden Histories

Ongoing creative projects about Govan's hidden histories Celebrating Govan's heritage, women's roles in protest movements, and the life and work of Isabella Elder

Merlin in Govan?! These young Questers can tell you!

We had a *magical* time in late 2016 with a whole host of local young children and young people. Pupils from Pirie Park Primary, St Constantine’s Primary, and St Saviour’s Primary took part in sessions exploring the Quest for the 13 Treasures of Govan & Glasgow, and Govan’s amazing ancient history. They then ventured along to Govan Old Church to take part in more activities and check out some incredible artefacts from those times.

Groups from  Govan Youth Information Point, Govan & Linthouse Scouts and The Preshal Trust also took part in sessions based around Govan’s Hidden Histories graphic novel.

We were thrilled by the reactions of those taking part in our games, quizzes and activities, and very pleased with our time spent exploring medieval Govan with local children and young people. Below are just a few snaps from the sessions. Be sure to check out the rest of our photos on our Flickrstream to see what they got up to.
