Title : Royal commission on the ancient and historical monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS)

Description :
This is the website of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS), which surveys and records the built heritage of Scotland and makes this information available to the public through the Collections of the National Monuments Record of Scotland (NMRS). The site provides information relating to recent or forthcoming research, exhibitions, or other projects connected with the historic sites and buildings of Scotland. The NMRS, named 'Canmore' contains bibliographic details of images and manuscripts relating to each of the sites on the National Record. The materials referred to are generally not available over the Internet, and must be viewed in person at the appropriate record offices. Registration is required in order to search the database. The format of the search output is: NMRS number; name of site; type of site; council covering the site; whether the site is scheduled or listed; and references to materials relating to the site. The search form for the database allows several search combinations, making it easy to quickly locate the appropriate references for whatever research is being conducted. The RCAHMS website also links to PASTMAP, an interactive site for displaying and searching data on Scotland's built environment, particularly legally protected places such as ancient monuments and listed buildings. The website also contains an online shop, news service, and a showcase that gives more information about recent publications. In addition, an educational service is provided, as are lists of links to other sites concerned with Scottish culture.
