Speakers Lunch: The Trades that shaped our Capital,
Monday 14th September 2020, 12 noon
Ian Robertson is the 350th Deacon Convener of the Incorporated Trades of Edinburgh. Trades have been with us since people first set up home in what became Edinburgh, but their ‘Incorporated’ status came about when charters, or ‘seals of cause’ were issued by the City from the fifteenth century onwards providing them with monopolies on the work carried out by each respective Trade until the nineteenth century. To hear more about the impact that this had on the shaping of Edinburgh, join us for lunch.
