Abstract: Because the details of the methods and importance of brewing and baking in medieval Scotland have not been so far written, this thesis has the goal of being a comprehensive exploration of that topic. Additionally, the goal is to see how unique Scottish practices were compared to others of the same era. To do so, the author establishes a background of the main climate factors and how grains used in brewing and baking were affected. From there, both brewing and baking were examined within their historical contexts and the details behind the known manufacturing techniques and how they compared to those available in earlier centuries. While sources from Scotland can be less detailed than from elsewhere, the traditions were unique enough to be often seen as distinctly Scottish.
