Holiday Apartment Perth video of Historic Archway Unveiled Scone Palace 23rd November 2012




Friday 23rd November, the restored 16th century historic archway at Scone Palace was unveiled by William Murray 
in a private ceremony not open to the public to celebrate the reconstruction of the archway damaged in a tragic accident in September 2010 when a contractors van crashed into it.
The restoration project has taken stonemasons and sculptors  a little over over two years to complete using 
drawings photographs and plaster cast models to recreate carvings from the ancient original heraldic designs.
Scone Palace is better
 known as the site where Scotland's Kings were crowned and the original home to the Stone of Destiny.

Neil Oliver Vikings Book Perth 20th November
Holiday Apartment Perth photo of Neil Oliver as he is interviewed by Perthshire on Line about his new book called Vikings at Perth Waterstones Bookshop.
Neil Oliver, historian and broacaster is best known as the charismatic presenter of the award-winning documentary series COAST.
Buy Vikings at the Perth on line Bookstore




New Book Description

The Vikings famously took no prisoners, relished cruel retribution, and prided themselves on their bloody-thirsty skills as warriors. But their prowess in battle is only a small part of their story, which stretches from their Scandinavian origins to America in the west and as far as Baghdad in the east. As the Vikings did not write their history, we have to discover it for ourselves, and that discovery, as Neil Oliver reveals, tells an extraordinary story of a people who, from the brink of destruction, reached a quarter of the way around the globe and built an empire that lasted nearly two hundred years. Drawing on the latest discoveries that have only recently come to light, Neil Oliver goes on the trail of the real Vikings. Where did they emerge from? How did they really live? And just what drove them to embark on such extraordinary voyages of discovery over 1000 years ago? VIKINGS will explore many of these questions for the first time in an epic story of one of the world's great empires of conquest.
