Scottish History

From the Picts to the founding of the new Scottish Parliament, the University offers expertise in all periods of study, from early medieval times to the present day. Other members of staff have published extensively on topics including early medieval battles, late medieval kingship, saints� cults, urban history, the Reformation, the witch hunt, government and finance, the Highlands in all periods, Scotland�s external relations (especially with America) and its place in the Union. Scottish History is home to the Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies, the first such research unit in the field. The Centre was formally established in spring 2008 to advance historical enquiry into this vital subject.
