Karl Sabbagh at the Pitlochry Winter Words Festival - 17.02.17
17 February 2017

Come along for an incredible tale of deception and tenacity in the botanical world. Karl Sabbagh's book A Rum Affair delves into the 1940s, when the eminent British botanist John Heslop Harrison proposed a controversial theory: that vegetation on the islands off the west coast of Scotland had survived the last Ice Age. What follows next is the story of what happened when a tenacious amateur set out to find out the truth, and how he uncovered a most extraordinary fraud.
