Distinguished Scottish Historian takes a walk through Scottish woodland history

The social and environmental impact of Scotland’s ancient Great Caledonian Forest will come under the spotlight at a public lecture at the University of Aberdeen tomorrow (Wednesday, December 9).

Pre-eminent Scottish historian Professor Christopher Smout, emeritus professor at the University of St Andrews, will give his lecture, Scottish Woodland History: Re-interpreting the Great Caledonian Forest, at King’s College Conference Centre as part of the centenary celebrations of Aberdeen University’s Department of History.

Professor Smout is Historiographer Royal in Scotland. His many publications include the greatly influential A History of the Scottish People 1560-1830, and its companion volume A Century of the Scottish People 1830-1950.

One of the most respected of Scottish historians, Professor Smout has played an essential part in placing social and economic history at the heart of historical discourse about modern Scotland.

The lecture, which is free by reservation, will take place on Wednesday (December 9) at King’s College Conference Centre at 6.30pm. It will be followed by a wine reception. To reserve a place, call Sandra Williams on (01224) 272456.
