Apardion, A Leopard's Quest

Welcome to the knowledge hub that explores the journey of Apardion - a gentle leopard spirit from the Northern Lights. In his quest to discover if Aberdeen should be his place of birth, Apardion visits 14 heritage landmarks and this is where you can find out about the rich history and culture of each of these sites.

The Reading Bus team has worked with 52 schools and over 3,500 pupils to populate this website.  The classes visited the historical sites and worked with a team of storytellers, artists, archaeologists, historians and artists to translate their findings into podcasts, films and literature. 

Come in and join us as we explore Apardion’s journey and discover the wonders and delights that Aberdeen has to offer!
