The Moses from Wigan
Sir John Scott was a Judge born in Wigan. In the spirit of Wigan’s fight for workers rights his Fire Within reformed the Egyptian legal system, abolishing slave labour that had been in existence since the Pharaohs. After his death, his collection of Ancient Egyptian treasures were gifted to the people of Wigan. In the manifesto, the priceless Royal Egyptian gold death mask is worn by Wiganers past and present.
Sir John Scott, 1841-1904
