Scotland’s Forgotten Past is a roller coaster ride up and down the back alleys of our history. From the way in which the convulsions of geology formed the land millions of years ago and how the land formed the people thousands of years ago to the forgotten sectarian riots of Morningside (never!) in 1930s Edinburgh to the Nazi MP for Peebles and Southern Midlothian and to the Borders blacksmith who changed the world, this tour of dark corners and the discovery of the mislaid, misplaced and misunderstood bits of Scotland’s story is revealing – an alternative view of this bad-tempered little nation on the northwest edge of Europe.
