Shetland’s reputation of having many excellent seamen made the isles an obvious target for the Press Gang or Bluejackets, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. The Royal Navy had problems recruiting enough volunteers, particularly during periods of war, so they used the system of impressment right up to 1815.
Playin da ba was once a popular pastime at Auld Christmas (5th/6th January).
An Interactive iBook which includes virtual tours around three of Shetland’s most prestigious archaeological monuments was Highly Commended in the Association for Learning Technologists Awards last week.
