Professor Alexander Fenton, the acknowledged leading expert on Scottish rural life, has died. During his long career he was Director of the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland, the School of Scottish Studies at the University of Edinburgh, and of the European Ethnological Research Centre. He was well known and liked my many members of the Rural Museums Network, and will be sadly missed.
