Museum exhibition to shed new light on British whaling industry
The exhibition takes visitors on a journey from the Arctic whaling industry in Dundee to the South Atlantic.
An exhibition at a Scottish museum is shedding new light on the British whaling industry.
The hunting of giant mammals has led to people protesting in the streets but for Dundonians, it was a staple industry for 130 years.
The exhibition takes visitors on a journey from the Arctic whaling industry in Dundee during the late 19th century to the South Atlantic.
Archive material being researched for the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther has also yielded a few surprises.
It is hoped the exhibition will not only educate visitors but promote new understandings of population change and conservation issues.
