Mar phàirt de Thilleadh Dhachaigh 2009, chaidh co-labhairt eadar-nàiseanta trì latha - Buaidh Chruinneil na h-Alba - a chumail ann an Taigh-chluiche Eden Court, Inbhir Nis, bho 22-24 Dàmhair. Thàinig sgoilearan, eachdraichean is eòlaichean eile còmhla gus deasbaireachd fhallain a bhrosnachadh mu eachdraidh imrich agus a' bhuaidh a bha aig muinntir na h-Alba thall-thairis.

Rinn Am Baile agallamhan le grunn luchd-labhairt rè na co-labhairt. San earrainn chlaistinnich seo, tha an Dr Tony Pollard a' freagairt na ceiste:

"A bheil naidheachd bheag agad a tha a' sealltainn taobh 'daonna' a' chuspair speisealta agad fhèin?"

'I was on Crete recently and I discovered that a, a chap that- When the British Expeditionary Force there that had already been evacuated there from Greece in 1941, they fought a very, very, very difficult and violent battle with the Germans who invaded by parachute on May 20th, my birthday - I always remember the date of that battle - and after a week they basically evacuated off the south side of Crete, and they were taken to Alexandria and many, many, many hundreds of men were lost at sea because the Luftwaffe had air superiority and they were bombing and striking the ships, and several of them went down.

And, but, there was one particular- There was a chap in the Black Watch who was on the prow of one of these ships as it sailed into Alexandria Harbour in Egypt, playing a lament on the pipes with the searchlight on the dock, shining on him, and I discovered from a Cretan who was very interested in that, that period of history that this chap is still alive, and he'd been in touch with him. So I've got his name and address, so I must get in touch with this, with this chap. He's sort of one of those personalities that gets drawn out of the history and never, never really expected him to still be alive and known. So that was - yes, you do. And that's, with the nature of what I do, which is looking at kind of, I suppose, the darker side of human, human history and human nature, it's full of poignant things like that. Makes you think really, how privileged we are today.'


EACHDRAIDH-BEATHA

'S e àrd-arc-eòlaiche air àr-fhaichean agus an Stiùriche aig Ionad Arc-Eòlas nam Blàr aig Oilthigh Ghlaschu a th' ann an Dtr Tony Pollard. 'S e prìomh-òraidiche a th' ann agus neach-gairm aig cùrsa MLitt air Arc-eòlas Àr-fhaichean agus Còmhstri. 'S e co-neach-taisbeanaidh a bh' ann aig an t-sreath telebhisean aig a' BhBC 'Two Men in a Trench', a thug arc-eòlas nan raointean blàir do mhòran luchd-èisteachd air feadh an t-saoghail. Tha e air pròiseactan àr-fhaich a dhèanamh san RA, ann an Afraga agus an Ameireaga a Deas agus tha e air grunnan ràithean obair air thalamh Àr-fhaich Chùil Lodair a stiùireadh, obair a chuidich gu mòr san Ionad Turasachd ùr-fhosgailte an sin agus ann am mìneachadh ath-sgrùdaichte a' bhlàir. Tha Tony cuideachd air pròiseactan a dhèanamh air àr-fhaichean Seumasach aig Coill a' Chnagaidh agus aig Prestonpans agus aig làrach sèist a' Ghearasdain.

Tha Tony na cho-dheasaiche den 'Journal of Conflict Archaeology' agus tha e air mòran a sgrìobhadh air arc-eòlas agus air eachdraidh airson luchd-èisteachd, an dà-chuid agadamaigeach agus mòr-shluaghach. 'S e na foillseachaidhean as ùire aige am fear ri-tighinn 'Culloden: The History and Archaeology of the Last Clan Battle' (Pen and Sword) agus a chiad nobhail, 'The Minutes of the Lazarus Club' (Penguin 2008).
