Coastal Scots: Stories of Life in Littoral Zones

You are invited to “Coastal Scots,” a day-long exploration of the lives and experiences of Scottish peoples in the coastal regions of Britain and North America, underlining the ways in which the physical environments and cultural geographies of littoral zones shaped the history of Scottish communities over the past three hundred years. Join us on Saturday, 29 February 2020, at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church for a day of public talks by scholars from Canada and Scotland addressing this theme through a broad range of topics.
