ABOUT HISTORIC HIGHLANDERS
Historic Highlanders is a Scottish cultural and educational organization. Our objective is to preserve authentic Scottish heritage by researching and recreating elements of everyday life of Highland society from 1314 to 1746 (the battles of Bannockburn and Culloden respectively), and to share that information with the public through lectures and demonstrations.

A CALL FOR CONSCRIPTS
Stop by and
see us at the festivals if you might be interested in joining the Historic
Highlanders. All that is needed is a love of history - OK, Scottish
history specifically. Interested conscripts always welcome at our
examples of how we do this are
garb: Members select a
period in Scottish history, research it, and then outfit
themselves accordingly. Historical accuracy in dress and accessories is adhered to as
closely as possible.
skills: We research and practice various
skills such as spinning, weaving,
leatherworking, blacksmithing, and others that
were used by period Highlanders in their daily lives. The group
is also participating in the construction of a Scottish "black house" in New Boston
Highlanders members possess a fine collection of period and
replica Scottish weaponry. Scotland's history
is a martial one, and this is nowhere more readily seen than in
her unique weaponry. We also have period cooking equipment and
various tools and utensils. Our members are well versed in the
history of each item and gladly share their knowledge with all
who have questions.
Culture: Members are
encouraged to explore Scotland's language, music, dance, and
other art forms. Research into other aspects of everyday highland
life during our period such as farming methods, food preparation,
dwellings, folk medicine, etc. is also
