It’s all happening in Highland this week at Culloden Academy. Scran has been invited to work with senior pupils studying the SQA Higher History syllabus. The focus will be on accessing resources and records related to the three main topics for the year;
- Migration & Empire 1830-1939
- Growth of Democracy 1850-1950 inc. the Suffragettes
- Growth of Nationalism, Germany 1815-1939
Besides learning how to use Scran as a research tool, the Culloden students will also be thinking about digital assets, copyright how to attribute their sources appropriately.
This “Good Luck” image is a firm favourite in the Scran office and you can find it amongst our records on emigration. It shows five well-dressed ladies posing with the Captain on board ‘SS Marloch’, before setting sail for Canada in 1924.
