The National Library of Scotland and the Royal Bank of Scotland have engaged in a joint venture to create an exhibition of their material relating to the Darien Scheme. It celebrates the inclusion in 2010 of the archives of 'The Company of Scotland Trading to Africa and the Indies' in UNESCO's UK Memory of the World register.
The result of this is an exhibition 'The key of the universe': Scotland and Darien, 1695-1707 which will run from 1 July to 31 August at the National Library of Scotland.
To mark the exhibition opening there was an article in The Scotsman on Wednesday 6th with RBS Archivist Laura Yeoman.
