Interesting things I have learnt this week: -The Gallery of Modern Art was originally built as someone's mansion, a rich tobacco lord named William Cunningham. http://www.amostcuriousmurder.com/RoyalExchangeHistory.htm -the Glasgow connection to the slave trade was stronger in the Carribean than the more infamous American plantations.

A slightly out of date article, as it's partially about the Homecoming event of 2009, this has come to my attention as a source for part of my essay research for my history course at Uni: http://www.variant.org.uk/35texts/AeFondKiss.html
