Weekly Digest 27/5/2016

Welcome to the Scottish History Network Weekly Digest.

As the summer is almost upon us, and the academic year winds up for the holidays (and lots of exciting conferences listed below), we will be posting a bi-weekly digest from the start of June. The next digest will therefore be out Friday 10th June 2016.

Please, however, continue to be in touch with any and all news, events and opportunities relating to Scottish history. As always, you can contact us via email at scottishhistorynetwork@gmail.com, on Twitter @ScotHistNetwork or via our Facebook page.
