The Scottish Society for Northern Studies explores the inter-relationships between the Scandinavian, Celtic and Scottish cultures through a variety of historical media and scholarly research.

The Society was founded in 1968 and has since provided both a forum and a community for specialists and enthusiasts of a wide breadth of disciplines to pursue their common ‘northern’ interests. Through seminars, conferences and publications, the SSNS seeks to encourage further exploration, research and scholarship across Scotland and beyond.

Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope you will find the tools and information here useful to your interest or research. Please feel free to view our archive of publications, event calendar, media gallery and new webstore, where you may purchase copies of the Northern Studies journal in both print and digital formats. As well, we hope you will take a moment to review our membership information and consider joining the Society.
