Scotland: Defending the Nation.

Tuesday 5 March, 2pm

Scotland has had a uniquely important military history over the last five centuries. Conflict with England in the 16th century, Jacobite rebellions in the 18th century, 20th-century defences and the two world wars, as well as the Cold War, all resulted in significant cartographic activity. In this illustrated talk, map expert Christopher Fleet and co-author Carolyn Anderson explore the extraordinarily rich legacy of Scottish military mapping, showing and explaining the variety of striking and attractive maps produced for different purposes while also discussing unrealised proposals and projected schemes.
