The Covenanters World
Where in the world are people interested in the history of the Scottish Covenanters? Around ninety per cent of the hits on this blog come from the Scotland and the British Isles, the USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
The map below shows where all of the hits from this year so far have come from.
I am not sure about the status of Svalbard on the internet, but it is the only European area not to record a hit.
Antarctica does not even appear on the map, but it would be nice to know if someone in that bleak most presbyterian of lands was interested in the history of Scottish muirs.
In the Americas, Greenland, Cuba and the Falkland Islands make unlikely bedfellows with no hits, as do some South and Central American states such as Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and Uruguay.
In Asia, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, the Central Asian ‘Stans, North Korea. Laos or Burma all returned zero hits. China also recorded no hits, but some did make it through from Hong Kong. One suspects that censorship is the major issue in most of those cases.
‘Francophone’ Africa and East Africa have so far proven particularly resistant to the allure of the Scottish Covenanters.
