Abstract

Industrialisation, urbanisation and migration provided the historical context of life in rural Scotland where radical transformation was felt in the nineteenth century. The Journal kept between 1879 and 1892 by James Wilson, a farmer in Banffshire, north-east Scotland, helps to illustrate life in rural society at this time.
