Scots Language Centre Centre for the Scots Leid

New historical recordings resource

14th December 2010

The Kist o Riches project aims to digitise, catalogue and disseminate Gaelic and Scots sound recordings. A new website for the project was this week launched in Edinburgh. This website contains thousands of oral recordings recorded in Scotland and further afield, from the 1930s onwards. The items you can listen to include stories, songs, music, poetry and factual information. Many of the Scots language recordings were gathered by Hamish Henderson.
