Scottish Salt Symposium — 16th & 17th October 2021
We are delighted to be taking part in a two-day event in Brora, Sutherland alongside the East Neuk Salt Company and Blackthorn Salt, that will bring together historians, archaeologists, enthusiasts and salt producers to celebrate the once vital, but little-known, Scottish salt industry.
On Saturday, the keynote speaker is historian Professor Chris Whatley, author of The Scottish Salt Industry 1570-1850, who will be followed by a wide-ranging programme of talks with speakers presenting the latest archaeological and historical research into the manufacture of Scottish sea salt.
On Sunday there will be field trips to historic sites associated with two of Brora’ early salt pans and experimental salt making in a replica coal-fired salt pan at the Brora Heritage Centre.
We are speaking on Saturday 17:15 to 17:35. You can see a full programme here.
