History Scotland online talk: attendee reviews

18 November 2020
Thinking about joining one of our online talks? Find out what recent attendees had to say.

Our first online talk took place on 18 November 2020, chaired by Dr Allan Kennedy, with a talk by Professor Murray Pittock titled: Under Martial Law by a Foreign Power? The aftermath of Culloden and the legacy of Jacobitism.

Here are a selection of the comments we received from attendees:

I just wanted to express my appreciation for Dr. Pittocks lecture last week. I confess it was a bit surreal watching the sunrise over Colorado's La Plata Mountains out of one eye and his talk out of the other, but I could not have asked for more. Besides the fascinating content, it was also just what I needed to spur me forward with my own research despite travel restrictions and closed libraries. Julie

Very much enjoyed the seminar. Audrey

Very useful and interesting on a topic that can be quite difficult to get coherent information on. Thank you. S.G. MacLean

Meant to write to thank you for yesterday's webinar. I've almost exhausted the short courses on History and Archaeology offered by FutureLearn, (some with Glasgow and Dundee universities), so was very pleased to watch a lecture by Professor Pittock. It was most informative and very enjoyable and I really look forward to joining more of these webinars.

Thanks to all who made the Prof. Murray Pittock lecture on Culloden possible. I was thoroughly engrossed by this presentation. The informative visuals are so helpful to those of us who have never (yet) visited Scotland. I would recommend even more... Victoria

Thank you very much to Professor Murray Pittock for a fascinating lecture on the aftermath of Culloden. Thanks also to Dr Allan Kennedy for chairing the event. It's good to have online events, and I look forward to others. Joan

I thought that the webinair presentation of Murray Pittock's lecture on November 18th was excellent. There certainly was a lot of content in his talk and it all came over very well with no technical hitches. Margaret
