Welcome to this research blog which I hope you will find interesting and informative. I am looking forward to engaging with you on the subject of the Shetland boat. I am a postgraduate research student at the Centre for Nordic Studies in Scalloway, Shetland which is part of the University of the Highlands and Islands.

This full-time research project is being funded by the Shetland Amenity Trust and Lerwick Port Authority. The purpose of this research project is to ensure that the cultural heritage of the Shetland model of boat, whose ancestry can be traced back to the Norwegian vikings is preserved for future generations.
