Medieval Aberdeen Project

The Environment of Medieval Aberdeen Project

Environment is a very wide term that we all use today but might be hard-pressed to explain. Weather, climate, global warming, pollution, protection of animals and habitats, conservation of natural resources and of the heritage might all spring to mind; while living conditions and family background might also feature in our definition.In discovering information about past environments, archaeology and historical archives are valuable resources. In Scotland, Aberdeen is unique in possessing archaeological remains of medieval date alongside preserved Council Registers dating back to 1398.

The Environment of Medieval Aberdeen Project began in 2001 with the aim of using such resources to enhance knowledge of the city and its residents between the 12th and the 17th centuries.
