‘Scottish History Inspirations’

Whatever we do in Scottish history, we’ve always been inspired by something. Perhaps it was a favourite book, an enthralling museum exhibit or a family story. It might have been artwork, a document, a place, a journey or a person. Whatever it was, it helped capture your imagination and drove you to explore the past.

The Scottish History Network invites you to share your stories in our blog series this year, ‘Scottish History Inspirations’, and join us in celebrating the myriad of ways that history continues to provoke interest and engagement throughout Scotland and beyond. We welcome submissions from anyone involved in the wider field of Scottish history in any capacity, including researchers, teachers, students, volunteers and heritage professionals. If you aren’t sure whether your idea would fit our remit, feel free to get in touch!
