Newburgh History Society promotes the history and archaeology of the royal burgh of Newburgh in Fife. Find out more about the society's activities in our spotlight feature.

The year 2016 marked the  750th anniversary of Alexander III granting town status to the community of Newburgh in Fife, a settlement with a long history of fruit growing, fishing and weaving; and an important stopping off point on the pilgrimage route between Perth and St Andrews.

Newburgh History Society was founded to promote the history and archaeology of the town. Members meet during the winter and spring months for talks on topics relating to the history of the town and its surroundings, and the group has close connections to the Laing Museum.

To find out more about the society, e-mail or visit the website.
