Orkney Science Festival: Launch of The Salt Roads by John Goodlad


Book Launch: The Salt Roads by John Goodlad, at The Orkney Science Festival

How the salt fish trade connected Shetland with the rest of Europe for more than two hundred years. John Goodlad, who has worked in the seafood industry all his life, describes how salt fish from Shetland became one of the staple foods of Europe and powered the economy of the islands.

The story ranges from the wild waters of the North Atlantic, the ice-filled fjords of Greenland and the remote islands of Faroe – to the dining tables of London’s middle classes, the bacalao restaurants of Spain and the Jewish shtetls of Eastern Europe.
