Over the past 12 months the Project Reveal teams have photographed, catalogued and digitized over 40,000 objects in 19 properties around Scotland. Here, we’ve chosen a few items ranging from the wonderfully bizarre Gin Pig jugs to delicate porcelain tea sets found in Pitmedden House.
With one year on since beginning Project Reveal, the teams have documented, preserved and researched various items from Victorian copper pots to French furniture, working in fantastic spaces such as Culzean Castle’s dining room to the bedrooms in Falkland Palace. In documenting and digitizing each artifact they find, Project Reveal gives us insight into the lives and practices of people from over hundred years ago, bringing us a little bit closer to Scotland’s heritage and history each day.
Project Reveal is a multi-site digitization project of unprecedented scale. It will result in an updated database with high quality images and unique object numbers for every item in the Trust material culture collections. With your support, we can help the Trust manage its collections more effectively. Most important, we can help the Trust discover, better understand, and share its treasures with the world. Please help us to secure this major investment in preserving Scotland’s heritage with a tax-deductible donation in support of Project Reveal.
