Malcolm Archibald is a member of the Society of Authors and a lecturer at Inverness College, University of the Highlands and Islands and his talk will be on the history of Whaling in Scotland.
Born in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland and educated at Dundee University, Malcolm has had a variety of occupations from postman to college lecturer. His first published article was at the age of 17, his first book, 'Scottish Battles' was published in 1990 and he usually has a number of ongoing projects. In 1999 his 'Mother Law' was a runner up at the inaugural Dundee Book Prize; in 2005 his 'Whales for the Wizard' won it outright and in 2011 his 'The Darkest Walk' was a winner in the People's Book Prize.
An eclectic writer, he works with a variety of genres, one of his primary interests being Whaling. Whaling was a Scottish industry that employed thousands and brought home blubber for oil and baleen that had a hundred different uses. It was a savage, bloody business that cost hundreds of lives and scores of ships.
