'Flourish' is a story about Glasgow's "City of the Dead". We're joining a group of history detectives from the Glasgow Women's Library for a guided tour at the Necropolis, a Victorian garden cemetery behind Glasgow Cathedral.
We'll hear stories of influential women who were buried here and learn about the lives of ordinary women in the city throughout history. Learn how many statues of women you can find in Glasgow, what happened to women accused of being witches, and what Queen Victoria has to do with fortune telling.
