Event Details

Linlithgow Museum is happy to announce our third virtual talk:

Plague and Pestilence: A History of Pandemics and their Impact on Scotland

Bruce Jamieson returns to deliver the next installment in our online talks series. Bruce is a well known Linlithgow resident and former Principal Teacher of History at Linlithgow Academy and was Provost of the Deacons Court. He has written and lectured extensively on the history of the town and we are delighted that he has put this talk together for us.

Join Bruce as he traces the history of epidemics and pandemics which have afflicted Scotland from the 14th century to the present day. There will be a focus on the impact of these outbreaks on a local level in Linlithgow and the methods medical practitioners have used across the ages to tackle them. Bruce promises “I’ll try to make it light-hearted!“
