2022 highlights

The year begins with our January/February issue, published on 14 December, with articles on the centenary of a landmark women's football ban, mythologising MacBethad, and the legacies of slavery in Glasgow's Southside.

Dr Allan Kennedy, who commissions the magazine's longer articles, said: '2022 promises to be a stellar year for History Scotland. We will be bringing you a wide range of cutting-edge research, including studies of the 'first Scottish Enlightenment', Scottish women in the Spanish Civil War, 17th-century banditry, and the built legacies of Atlantic slavery. Later in the year, we will also be presenting an innovative special issue on everyday life in the Middle Ages. There is, in short, a huge amount of exciting reading to look forward to!'
