A Virtual Research Environment for Jacobite Studies.

Stacks Image 187

Welcome to Spines of the Thistle, a digital hub of 18th-century studies and fledgling Virtual Research Environment. This website is intended to offer two main functions: one, to collect, house, and promote emerging scholarship related to Jacobite Studies, and two, to provide useful links to connected subjects in the Humanities and Digital Humanities. At this time, the site is still under heavy construction, but will continue to remain live so that its resources are still available during the process of finalisation. Please feel free to look around and see our plans before the official launch is announced. You might also wish to keep the site bookmarked, as more content is being added often, and you are welcome to contact the publisher with queries or suggestions.
