The Scottish Clearances: A History of the Dispossessed

Festival Marquee
Sun 30 Sep

The landscape of Scotland today came at a heavy price. In a major new work, Professor Sir Tom Devine has told the story of the destruction of entire communities and 300 years of large-scale emigration from both Highlands and Lowlands. He talks about his reassessment and challenges some of the myths around these epic upheavals. [909]
