Scottish History Society volumes cover all periods from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries and a very wide range of topics – social, economic, legal, political, constitutional, diplomatic, military and religious history, as well as farming, gardening and the joys of good housekeeping! In addition to making available sources vital to the study and writing of Scottish history, most volumes have substantial introductions by the editors. The volumes are thus not only of value to professional historians and teachers of history, but to all who take an interest in Scotland’s past.
Our work depends on the generosity of our membership, which allows us firstly, to fund the publication of our volumes, and secondly, to promote the study of and research in the history of Scotland and the Scots, supporting the discipline into the twenty-first century. The benefits of membership include a free hard copy of our annual volume, and invitations to our events, including our AGM, Presidential Lecture and Publications Workshops.
