The Incorporated Trades of Edinburgh
Like all the chartered towns of Europe Edinburgh had its guilds. What do we know about them, and what enduring evidence have they left of their activities? Gordon Wyllie will explore this in this fascinating lecture.
Gordon Wyllie is a charity and trust lawyer who chairs the Law Society of Scotland's Trust and Succession Committee and was a member of the European Commission's Group of Experts on International Succession Law. He is the President of the Burgess Association of Edinburgh, a founding member of the Mediaeval Glasgow Trust, and served three years as Deacon Convener of the Trades of Edinburgh.
