As with the extracts from the City History, this is not in any way intended to represent or add to the well recorded history of Scotland.
The entries here are intended to give just a glimpse of how easily valuable and little know items can be found and extracted to help give a picture of one small part of the goings on in Scotland. Most of these extracts were found where the history of Scotland met with the history of the Royal Burgh of Dundee and whilst they are not intended to stand alone may well add to the general public’s knowledge of Scottish history. They might well be called a hotch potch of scraps of information joined together to, hopefully, make interesting reading. In addition to general history are have added items of curiosity intended to be dipped into as the mood takes the reader.
