Whose Town? is an award-winning and innovative resource for teaching Social Studies. It was developed by Edinburgh City Libraries in partnership with Edinburgh Museums and Galleries and Edinburgh City Archives. It is an interactive digital resource built on the City of Edinburgh's heritage collections that brings Edinburgh's history to life. Whose Town? is linked to the Curriculum for Excellence second to fourth level outcomes. Whose Town? was supported with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
