ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of the Culloden Battlefield Memorial Project (CBMP) in Scotland. It reveals that it is in Culloden that dead bodies from the battle between the Jacobites and the government side. The battlefield became a place where people came to pay their respects almost overnight. Accordingly, a key objective of the CBMP was to remove the old visitor centre away from the immediate area of battle.
