Synopsis:
`The Cregeen Journals: Sustainability, Land-use, Language and Culture', the project has been led by folklorist Dr Margaret Bennett, former lecturer at the University of Edinburgh's School of Scottish Studies. Eric R. Cregeen's journals, written between 1938 and 1982, kept a record of his ideas, travels, and fieldwork carried out in the Isle of Man and the West Highlands of Scotland. They include notes on local culture, social history, features of landscape and archaeology; his development of research methods; and accounts of visits made in the quest to document the way of life and traditions of people on the Isle of Man and the West Highlands who lived off the land and the sea. As the journals collectively amount to almost 4,000 pages, it was essential to engage a team to digitize and transcribe them in order to conserve the collection for future generations and for further research.
