Happy 2019 Scottish history enthusiasts! It is a slightly shorter digest than usual as everything is ramping up again for 2019, but we wanted to take a moment to thank you for your ongoing support for the network and our ongoing efforts to share all things new in #ScotHist!

As always, if we have missed anything, or you have something you’d like us to include in the future, please get in touch at scottishhistorynetwork@gmail.com, on Twitter @ScotHistNetwork or via our Facebook page. If interested in writing a blog for us, please get in touch. It’s great to hear from people involved in Scottish History in lots of different ways and we look forward to finding out what you are all up to.
