This book examines the incidence and effects of plague in an early modern Scottish community by analysing responses to epidemics in the north-east port of Aberdeen. Then, as now, Aberdeen was one of Scotland’s largest towns and an important centre of commercial, intellectual, political and social interactions. Yet it avoided plague outbreaks for ninety-eight years, a period unparalleled in the British Isles. This book suggests why.
