Remembering Highland Culture After the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion

This exhibit explores two mediations: a letter between Walter Scott and 18th century poet Anna Seward, and a BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Scott's historical fiction novel, Waverley. While Scott writes to Seward in September 1806, and the BBC broadcast is from April 2014, both mediations convey contrasting memories of Highland culture from before and after the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion.
