‘Tam o Shanter’ is the most memorialised of all Burns’s works. The convivial scene depicted here is derived from the statues of Tam o Shanter and Souter Johnie sculpted by the Tarbolton Stonemason, James Thom (1802-1850). Since the statues’ completion in 1828, this image has been reproduced on nearly all 19th century ‘Tam o Shanter’ memorabilia. The poem has become central in the memorialisation of Robert Burns because of its association with conviviality, fraternity and drinking. Image copyright The Mitchell Library.

Arts & Humanities Research Council: Each year the AHRC provides approximately £100 million from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes approximately 700 research awards and around 1,000 postgraduate awards. Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
