East Neuk Unearthed: treasures of Fife’s hidden past

Wed 11 Sep 19

With this exhibition we travel through time to discover the history that lies hidden all around us and in the earth beneath our feet.

The Scottish Fisheries Museum brings together a range of objects found on or near the museum site, once itself an important hub within the town. They illustrate the themes of Food and Drink, Customs and Beliefs, Trades and Occupations, and Frontiers, that shaped the lives of those who were here before us. These unique travellers from the past will be our guides through the fascinating history of this place.

The exhibition is part of our current 50th anniversary celebrations in which we chart the development of the fishing industry and, as in this case, the museum site itself.
The exhibition was first shown in as part of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017 and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Stories, Stones and Bones and Fife Council’s Strategic Events Investment Programme.
