A project to conserve the collection of Professor Donald Mackinnon (1839-1914), the University of Edinburgh’s first Professor of Celtic, during an eight-week internship. It includes medieval Gaelic manuscripts, such as a 15th-century manuscript on medieval physiography and a 16th-century summary of the Treatise of Maighstir Ricairdi. It also include manuscripts of 18th-century tales and verse, lecture notes on Gaelic literature and grammar, Gaelic versions of classical epics, Gaelic poetry and songs, and religious texts.

This project will link a small number of LoRaWAN gateways sited in the Western Isles owned by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and run by a third-party, Farrpoint (an SME located in Edinburgh), directly into our University run LoRaWAN network instance.

Nearly half the world’s population are affiliated with either Christianity or Islam. Since Islam’s emergence over 1600 years ago, Christians and Muslims have continually engaged with one another. These encounters have been marked by rivalry and cooperation, violence and peace, polemics and dialogue—including interactions around philosophy and theology, politics and law, prayer and personal piety, and even architecture and public space.
