from the editor

Welcome to September/October History Scotland. A glance at the contents page overleaf shows that despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 restrictions, Scottish history and archaeology continue to thrive. We're pleased to present in this issue an exclusive opinion piece by historiographer royal Professor Christopher Smout, who talks about Scotland's slavery links in light of the Black Lives Matter campaign. As history enthusiasts, we know only too well that it is only by educating ourselves about our history, no matter how uncomfortable parts of it may seem, that we can take part in current debates and help to build a better future. We look forward to presenting you with a themed Jacobite special edition of History Scotland next time. You can pre-order a copy from our website, or subscribe to make sure…

meet the contributors

Dr Miles Kerr-Peterson is an affiliate of the Universities of Glasgow and Dundee. In new research starting on page 28, he explores the hidden history of Keith Marischal House, a lost renaissance palace buried within a much more modern stately home. Morven Leese is an independent researcher whose study of George Meikle Kemp in her book George Meikle Kemp: Architect of the Scott Monument prompted her to investigate the life of Kemp’s best friend David Cousin. Morven shares her findings in an article starting on page 12, where she explores the life of the prolific and versatile architect David Cousin who, despite being largely forgotten today, did much shape Scotland’s modern built environment, particularly in Edinburgh. Christopher Reekie is a retired journalist. He worked as a general reporter for 43 years, on weekly and…

bearsden: a roman bath-house in scotland

In 1973 a Roman bath-house was discovered in Bearsden, on the northern outskirts of Glasgow. It was found as part of an exploratory excavation of the associated Roman fort in advance of a housing development. Ten seasons of excavation followed and in 2016 the report was published. It sold out but has now been made available free of charge courtesy of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland: https://doi.org/10.9750/9781908332189 The bath-house, together with the adjacent latrine, are in the care of Historic Environment Scotland and are part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site. The published report tells the story of the excavation and the discoveries made over those ten seasons. Amongst the important results was evidence for life in the fort and its bath-house. We…

dr alasdair ross memorial prize winner announced

The winner is Dr Coreen McGuire. She spoke to History Scotland about her plans for the £500 research grant, which is part of the prize: ‘I was absolutely delighted to receive this news, and it was especially cheering to receive such a nice missive amidst the stricter stages of the lockdown. ‘I will visit 4-5 archives across Scotland which hold records of the schools for the deaf from the 19th century. I will interpret these archival collections through an epistemic injustice framework, arguing that 19th-century oralism was a paradigmatic case of epistemic injustice, and exploring the ways in which different areas of Scotland resisted this injustice. ‘Many scholars have explored the extent to which oralism was motivated by Christian ideology or have emphasised the crucial role of the Scottish-American telephone inventor Alexander…

historic property covid-19 closures could last until 2022

In line with previous revelations about the charity’s loss of income resulting from the pandemic, the NTS is also listing the properties it is proposing to delay opening until at least 2021, either due to lack of resources or because they cannot be adequately adapted to ongoing social distancing restrictions. The NTS confirmed that it did not anticipate opening more than half of its built heritage properties again during 2020 due to a number of factors. It has now shared the list of such properties it hopes to re-open this year, from mid-August onwards, those that are likely to stay closed until Easter 2021 and a few that may have to stay closed until 2022. The Trust is already beginning to remove barriers to access at some of its key countryside properties,…

#storyofourstreet

I was born, quite a long time ago, in Bowling, a village on the banks of the Clyde, twelve miles from Glasgow and three miles from Dumbarton. Throughout my childhood the village seemed to be unchanging. Most of my friends had parents, and even grandparents, who knew each other as children and had gone to school together. The village is stretched along a narrow corridor of land between the river and the steeply-wooded hills behind. At the eastern side of the village is the road which takes you down to the harbour and it is here that the Forth and Clyde canal starts. At the western edge of the village lies Littlemill, which in my childhood, had some old houses, the Littlemill distillery and a pub, the Horseshoe Bar, known locally…
