  1. Why don’t you folks take some time to visit the Scottish Church College, located at 1 & 3 Urquhart Square, opposite Hedua, in north Calcutta?

    That is a vibrant institution that even today, espouses many of the ideals of the Scottish Enlightenment, and the Bengal Renaissance. And it is also a little piece of Scotland in Calcutta. Surprising as it may sound, it is (perhaps) the oldest continuously running Christian liberal arts college in India. Also it is one of the most prestigious colleges there.

    Wikipedia has a nice detailed article on the college’s history, and its alumni. Maybe your team of researchers might find more interesting details there as well.

    Anyway, all the best.

  2. Great to see your first posting on the blog, James. I hope that nobody is feeling too jetlagged and that the week’s work has got off to a good start. We at RCAHMS are thinking of you, Clare and Steve!
