The Hidden Stories Map
In every city there are many hidden stories. Our buildings, statues and the names we give to places often contain links & clues to past events and forgotten people.
From the 17th century, Scotland was significantly involved in the transatlantic slave trade. Glasgow played an important role in this dark chapter of history. Many of the buildings in Glasgow were built from the profits of slavery. Scotland also features in the story of the fight to end chattel slavery in the 18th century. The Hidden Stories Map will take you on a journey through part of our city & through time, uncovering some of the stories behind our buildings and the spaces between them.
