Making of Shetland Landscape by Susan Knox

Book Description

Dr Knox examines the transformation of Shetland's agricultural economy from one of subsistence in the eighteenth century to one of commercial stock-rearing in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A radical contribution towards this transformation was the division and taking into landlord ownership of a large part of the common grazing - the scattald - which, supplemented by fishing, had provided the vital element of a subsistence economy. Innovations such as enclosed fields, drained mosses, changed crops and rotations, and the introduction of large numbers of sheep and cattle had a profound effect on the landscape of the islands. The physical and social transformation of Shetland by this process of enclosure is placed in the wider context of agricultural and economic change on the British and international scene.
