The SRA conference, delayed from the autumn, due to COVID-19, will take place online on Wednesday 12 May 2021 and will be on the topic of sources for the history of fishing and fishing communities in Scotland (medieval, early-modern and modern). Some of the sources covered are artefacts and physical objects (including museum collections), film and sound archives, parliamentary papers, central government records, harbour trust records and fishery society records. Speakers include historians, archaeologists, ethnographers, museum curators and archivists. The conference will take place via Zoom, is open to SRA members and non-members alike and is free of charge, though places are limited and are on a first come first served basis.
