On the 21st of June 1919, the interned vessels of the German High Seas Fleet were scuttled in Scapa Flow. The largest loss of shipping ever recorded in one day, the scuttling has had a lasting impact on the landscape and people of Orkney. From salvage campaigns to recreational diving, and from research on museum collections to studies of ecology, the scuttling looms large in local memory.

This volume brings together the proceedings of a three day centenary conference - Scapa 100: The Orkney Story. Carrying us from internment to the 'afterlives' of objects, the studies gathered here explore the legacies of that day, reflecting upon the influence that it continues to have on the lives of people across the region.
