Edinburgh History


RCAHMS has been working with the National Library of Scotland and the ‘Scotsman’ newspaper to tell the stories of the nation’s cities.

From intricate seventeenth century sketches and eighteenth century town plans, to pioneering Victorian photography and modern aerial survey imagery, the material from the RCAHMS National Collection is being used to produce visual timelines of the history of Scotland’s major cities and towns.

You can browse and buy all the imagery featured in the supplements – plus a lot more – in our series of galleries and through our online, searchable database of architecture and archaeology, Canmore.
