The Surprising History of the Scottish Funeral: An exploration of the history of the Scottish funeral reveals that, far from being a timeless ritual, it has constantly undergone many significant and surprising changes that have made it very different from the funeral ritual in other parts of Britain. Many eye-opening facts will be explained in this talk. Eddie Small is a lecturer at Dundee University. He has twice won the Stephen Fry Award for public engagement, and was voted the 2016 Inspirational Teaching Award winner by the University’s student body.
