Research and education are at the forefront of our project. Whether it concerns history, architecture or archaeology, we seek engagement with professionals and academics to add to the body of knowledge on Boleskine House.
We welcome contributions by those within academia to feature their research on our website and also in our bi-annual publication, Boleskine, the official journal of The Boleskine House Foundation.
As an educational-based charity, we wish to be proactive in research related to history and the humanities. However, we also aim to engage people with heritage with real-life skills. We therefore are implementing our “heritage skills” programme, which will provide seminars, workshops on traditional skills related to our conservation project.
Archaeology & Architecture
Thanks to our project getting underway, we have made fascinating discoveries about Boleskine’s archaeology and architecture. Please take a moment and see what our professionals have put together after an exhaustive fabric analysis.
We are building a unique collection of monographs and archives and intend on having them on site so that Boleskine House will become a research centre for a myriad of subjects, ranging from Scottish history, historic architecture, and even the exciting multidisciplinary field of Western esotericism.
Our educational aims are not purely academic. We want to provide opportunities for more people to gain exposure to traditional skills within the heritage sector. We encourage our volunteers to get first hand experience with our project by helping out our professionals where they can and getting familiar with the house’s historic features.. We are also using multimedia technology to put this knowledge far and wide into the world.
