From silver spoons to silver bullets, silver permeates our everyday culture and language. For millennia we've used it to buy what we need, adorn our bodies and trumpet our social status. Once valued primarily for its beauty and rarity, silver is now also exploited for its chemistry, used in modern-day textiles, electronics and medical devices.
Join author Lindsay Shen for a discussion of a metal that is both precious and useful, with a rich and eventful history.
Scotland’s Early Silver follows three years of research supported by The Glenmorangie Company.
