Secret Aberdeen

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Lorna Corall Dey

Aberdeen is not a boastful city, preferring to wear its many distinctions lightly. Which of its institutions produced three Nobel laureates and who became the first Director General of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)? Which prominent Aberdeen doctor was involved in setting up the NHS in Britain? What has the popularity of coffee to do with Aberdeen’s engineering past? Where in Nepal and the Falkland Islands would you find a not-so-little piece of Aberdeen?

Aberdeen is the oil and gas capital of Europe but lights once glimmered on whale blubber before offshore gas came to town. When were town councillors accused of trying to plunder the Mither Kirk? Where might Robert Burns and Dr Johnson have slept in the same bed? Let’s draw back the veil on Secret Aberdeen.
