Building the British Atlantic World

The final chapter turns to settlement, farming and home-making in British Canada; the politically charged, northern-most territory of the British Atlantic world. Focusing on the farmhouses and small-town houses built and occupied by the two dominant immigrant groups in late eighteenth to early-nineteenth century Nova Scotia - British American Loyalists and Highland Scots – the chapter considers the universal material culture of building and inhabiting farmhouses that emerged in the later eighteenth century and which overlaid, masked even, the political complexities, tensions and uncertainties that pervaded this recently won colony.
