About History Scotland magazine

History Scotland is edited by author and lecturer Dr Allan Kennedy of the University of Dundee. The bi-monthly magazine reflects current thinking, the latest research and new discoveries, and is written by Scotland’s leading historians, archaeologists and museum curators.

The magazine reflects the growing interest in Scottish history and identity. Above all it seeks to bring the subject to the widest possible readership both nationally and internationally, in an engaging, enjoyable way.

The magazine is a must-have resource for anyone interested in Scottish family history or local history, with exclusive columns in each issue from National Records Scotland and the Scottish Genealogy Society. 2021 is History Scotland’s 20th anniversary and we’re excited to be launching several new projects, including a witchcraft podcast, Jacobite research series and a major series on the second war of independence.
