Devine Discusses the Diaspora

From the National Library of Scotland:

The Global Scot: Emigration, Empire and Impact

30 June 7pm

Professor Tom Devine OBE explains how a county as small as Scotland came to have such an extraordinary influence on world development.

The British Empire was the largest the world has ever known, ruling over 750 million subjects in 1914. Scots were significantly over-represented in this global imperial project as governors, merchants, educators, soldiers, administrators and much else.

We expect this leading historian's talk to book out quickly, make sure you don't miss the boat!
