Research title: Repopulating the Braes

Research Summary

Research aims and questions:

My research will investigate the relationship between shieling practice and other seasonal upland industries in post-medieval Scotland in order to repopulate, in the collective imagination, supposedly ‘empty’ places once filled by this common transhumance practice.

  • What was the relationship between shieling practice and other seasonal upland industries and practices in the highlands of Scotland?
  • How did the changing social and economic practices in the post-medieval period impact the development of shieling practice?
  • What role did shieling practice play in the socio-economic sustainability of crofting lifestyles in the Highlands of Scotland and how does this impact the sustainability of modern crofting as it develops?
  • How can we ‘repopulate’ the post-medieval highlands in the minds of future generations.

Research Interests:

Landscape Archaeology, Post-Medieval Archaeology, transhumance, Historical Geography, activitst scholarship and the cultural politics of land reform.
