We return to Shetland for our online piece this week, with a film on the subject of dialect. This is the second in the series created for us by Keiba Clubb, and our thanks go to her and all that took part in the making of the film.

Faeroese philologist Jacob Jacobson(1864-1918), who made a study of the Shetland Norn.

Museum nan Eilean have also posted an update on progress with the making of their online exhibition which can be seen here.

Having had various delays and complications due to lockdown, I am delighted to say that all three museums are in the process of documenting their individual Between Islands collections at the moment, and we look forward to presenting these online later this year.
