New book launch

The Earl and the Exciseman is the story of the violent death of the 10th Earl of Eglinton in 1769 and the subsequent trial of Mungo Campbell. Using previously unavailable sources, James Kennedy meticulously describes the event which rocked the British establishment at the time, and the legal processes in Georgian Edinburgh which are shocking to the modern mind and which favoured the land-owning elite over the ordinary man. To be launched on 13th July. See shop page for details.
