Mann, Myth & Mungo

Post by Grahame » Wed Oct 09, 2019 3:48 pm

This is a 23 minute in absentia presentation that I recorded for the Glasgow University Archaeology dept. conference 'The Mann, the Myth' on 5 October 2019, celebrating 150 years of Ludovic McLellan Mann, the renegade Glasgow archaeologist. I had to do a pre-record on this as I was out of the country on the day of the conference, but I gather it went down very well with many of the attendees.

The talk links Mann's idea that Glasgow was laid out on a geometric radial grid with the Glasgow Network of Aligned Sites noted by Harry Bell in his book 'Glasgow's Secret Geometry'; woven around a psycho-geographic adventure involving the birth of Glasgow's patron saint, Kentigern, and his journey to Glasgow. It's quite a ride!
