The Waggonway Project are celebrating the release of 'SALT: Scotland's Newest Oldest Industry' on Saturday 25th November.
Starting at the 1722 Waggonway Museum, our expert guides will lead a coastal tour of the local salt pan sites, giving a fascinating insight into the history and archaeology of the coastline.
The tour will finish at the Battle of Prestonpans Jacobite Museum in Prestonpans, where authors of the book will speak about their contributions to what is the most comprehensive and up to date book on Scotland's most essential of industries.
Our special guest for the day is Joanna Hambly, author and co-editor of the book, who has been instrumental in ensuring that the collective knowledge of Scotland's saltiest people has been collated.
