Speakers Lunch: Evening Lecture: Salt- Scotland’s Forgotten Industry,
Monday 2nd November 2020,7pm
The manufacture of salt from sea water is one of Scotland’s oldest industries. At one time the smoke and steam from clusters of saltpans were a common sight on the Scottish coast. This talk will trace the history of this largely forgotten industry and its slave-like workers.
Professor Christopher A Whatley OBE, was the author of the first book on the Scottish salt industry (1987), and has written many more, including The Scots and the Union (2006), Immortal Memory: Burns and the Scottish People (2016) and Pabay: An Island Odyssey (2019).
