Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.4 MB
Overview: Migration is a fundamental feature of human experience. This extraordinary collection of essays focuses on a particularly intriguing sequence of migrations: those of Scots during the period 1600-1800. The book first considers the “near-abroad” (Ireland), the “middle-abroad” (Poland and Lithuania), and the “far-abroad” (the Americas), and then details a number of acutely revealing case histories of Scottish communities in Bergen (Norway), Rotterdam and the Maas (the Netherlands), Gothenburg (Sweden), Kèdainiai (Lithuania), and Hamburg (Germany). Then, concentrating on the Netherlands, the focus shifts to specific cultural/occupational milieux: exiles (usually for religious reasons), students, and soldiers or sailors. In conclusion, three leading scholars-Lex Heerma van Voss, Sølvi Søgner, and Thomas O’Connor-offer wider contextual perspectives that compare the Scottish experience with that of other countries. As Professor T.C. Smout says in his Foreword, “The present volume is a breakthrough, surely the biggest advance in the field for a hundred years.

Swords for Hire: The Scottish Mercenary by James Miller
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.7 MB
Overview: In 1612, George Sinclair, an illegitimate son of a Caithness laird, became a Norwegian national hero. Along with almost 300 of his followers, Sinclair was killed in an ambush in Norway while marching to join the King of Sweden’s army. Sinclair has legendary status in Norway but has been totally forgotten in his home country, just as the memory of thousands of other Scottish mercenaries who served in the the armies of Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries has been forgotten.

In this book, James Miller tells how a considerable proportion of the able bodied male population of Scotland at one time sought service on behalf of every dynasty and monarch on the continent of Europe. Some were fleeing from justice, others went to seek fame and fortune and found it.
