Abstract:
Considers the problem of lock picking as a means of unlawful entry in early modern Scottish towns, and responses to this problem by craft guilds. Discusses the lock technology available during this period, using surviving locks and lock picks (the latter mainly from the collection of the 'notorious' Deacon Brodie) alongside documentary evidence. Evidence for the response of locksmiths to the problems of lock picking is also drawn from both artefactual and documentary evidence.
