David Livingstone Birthplace

Welcome to the David Livingstone Birthplace

The project will relaunch the David Livingstone Birthplace site and re-interpret his story for a new generation, telling his life-story from multiple perspectives, from his humble beginnings as a Blantyre mill-worker to becoming a world famous adventurer.
 We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project.
