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:

"Nad bheachd-sa, carson a tha e cudromach an t-àm a chaidh seachad a rannsachadh?"

'Well, as I said today, I think, I think we need to- The past is, you know, it's been said it's a foreign country but it's a very difficult place, and especially the sort of past that I look at; it's not the touchy-feely, very nice, flowers in your hair past, it's, it's people killing one another and dying in the most violent fashion. And I think it's very important that we do - it sounds a cliché - but we learn by our mistakes, or at least we should do, and it's very important that we don't forget those mistakes, and for various reasons, certain agencies, or whatever, might wish that we would. But, no, I think an historian's job is - I had a conversation with Dan Snow, the historian, recently, in Inverness actually, after too many drinks, and I described historians as important as physicists because what we do is we explain the human condition, through the work we do. Not necessarily in a scientific fashion, but we have a central role in doing that; just as a physicist describes the universe, how it works on a molecular level, I think we're physicists of the soul, really, and explore what makes people tick. So, he- I said the next morning, I said, 'I think we had one too many last night' and he said, 'No, I loved what you were saying', so I'll stick with it.'


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).
