Murray Pittock

Scotland: The Global History

Festival Marquee
Sat 1 Oct
13:30 UK

Scotland is one of the oldest nations on Earth, yet by some it is hardly considered a nation at all, its history often reduced simply to a component part of Britain’s wider story. Murray Pittock is here to set that right. He’ll be discussing his wide-ranging and authoritative history of Scotland’s influence on the world and the world’s on Scotland from the Thirty Years War to the present day, a tale of innovation, exploration, resistance, surprising diversity and global consequence. How, even after the country disappeared from the map as an independent state, did it continue to build a global brand?
