For three decades, Scotland was on the frontline in a potential Third World War with the Soviet Union. From the 1960s the west of Scotland was home to Britain’s nuclear deterrent and a key strategic American submarine base. In this talk, Dr Jim Gledhill will examine the Cold War from a Scottish perspective and the importance of its heritage today.
Dr Jim Gledhill is Research Fellow at National Museums Scotland working on the project Materialising the Cold War. He was previously curator of social history at the Museum of London and York Castle Museum and regimental curator of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.
