For a week in April 1884, Edinburgh University celebrated its three-hundredth anniversary with a series of lavish ceremonies and social events, also involving the town council and the student body. There were dinners, receptions, fireworks, football matches, illuminations, and a torchlight procession, as well as the award of honorary degrees to scientists, scholars and public figures from all over the world.

Prof. (Emeritus) Robert Anderson takes us through the Tercentenary Festival with the help of rarely seen visual records.
