Black History Month: Milford’s Shirts: Scotland, Linen and Clothing the Enslaved

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.


In 1758 alone, Scotland produced 2.2 million yards of ‘Osnaburg’ linen, a coarse, medium weight cloth that had multiple uses, most notably as part of enslaved peoples’ wardrobe in the West Indies and North America. Dr Sally Tuckett will trace how this linen came to be made in Scotland, who might have been involved in its production, and how we can use it to try and piece together information about the lives of the enslaved.
