Virtual Tour of the Lyon Register

 As the Lyon Office looks as if it will remain closed until well into 2021, we can have a short virtual visit to its greatest treasure - the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland. Like Maria, we will begin at the very beginning with Volume One. Although it has no illustrations of the arms, apart from a few added by later hands, it is an interesting volume and covers more than a third of the entire history of the Register - from 1672 until the first decade of the 19th century.
