This coming Easter, Saturday to Monday, 15th to 17th April, the Soutra site will be open for people interested in the story of this ancient Augustinian Abbey-Hospital. Visits at 2 p.m. each day will be conducted by Dr Brian Moffatt who has conducted the archaeological investigations. This is a Must for anyone interested in history, ancient pharmacy and medical practice as well as the life of this monastic community.
My new book, Border Brothers, is a fictionalised version of the mysterious collapse and disgrace of the once-eminent establishment. I shall be there with Brian, taking an interest in this fascinating area and its hidden stories, and hoping to interest you, the public, in the book.
