Yesterday we hosted two highly-informative talks at the Heritage Hub, as part of the 2024 Hawick Reivers Festival.

Paul Brough, lead archivist with over 40 years’ experience, spoke on the processes and importance of digital archives – as well as offering sneak previews of the hub’s ‘new’ collections.

The author John Barton Watson then took us on a journey through Annandale with his freshly-discovered Border Reivers ancestry.

Many thanks to our speakers and to everyone who attended.
