Scottish History has been taught at the University of Edinburgh ever since the prestigious Fraser Chair of Scottish History was established in 1901. The subject area has seven core members of staff, plus a number of postdoctoral fellows and associated staff. Their expertise ranges very widely: from the early medieval period to the present day; from saints to witches; from the Highlands to Scotland’s overseas connections; and from the Picts to the founding of the new Scottish Parliament.
