This month in Leopard Magazine

This month our contributors have once again provided a diverse array of features containing a wealth of information that adds to our collective knowledge and sense of place.Leopard July/August Front Cover

Alison McCall’s article on the city’s Women’s Heritage Trail takes us on a 400-year tour which will hold some surprises for many readers.

If you’ve ever wondered why solid granite is rarely used in today’s new buildings and why steel-and-glass buildings now dominate the town and city scapes, Mark Chalmers provides some thought-provoking answers.

Duncan Harley’s ‘Our Town’ never fails to reveal less well-known historical facts about our North-east communities, and he continues the tradition with his article on Portsoy.

Staying on local history, Neil Curtis, head of Museums at the University of Aberdeen, explains how recent research has dispelled some myths about the provenance of ‘Roman’ artefacts, while Derek Jennings continues his two-part exploration of Bram Stoker’s Cruden Bay connection, which led to the creation of one of the creepiest craturs of all time. And it’s not even Halloween yet!

Finally, to find out more about the sheer spread of cultural events throughout the city and shire this month, look no further than ‘Diary’ and ‘What’s On’, courtesy of Annie Woolridge and Grace Simpson.
