The History of Tiree in 100 Objects

Dr John Holliday, An Iodhlann’s Chairperson, has recently been compiling articles for An Tirisdeach, Tiree’s local newsletter, each telling the story of an item of particular interest from An Iodhlann’s archive. When read together, ‘Tiree in 100 Objects’ provides an additional insight into the culture and history of Tiree. Here are the first 50. We will be adding more soon.
