MICHAEL PEARCE – Furnishing the tower house: nobles, lairds, merchants and craftsmen

Dr Michael Pearce worked with Historic Environment Scotland advising on interiors and decoration. For his PhD he researched room use and furnishings in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Scotland. His archival discoveries have revealed that tower house furnishings included a mixture of imported and locally made pieces deployed according to long-standing ideas of status and hospitality.  Michael is now immersed in the archive, writing for heritage interpretation projects.
