Text source

George Adams was a British student at Rostock university in 1606. He is listed as 'Britannus'. Given the English distaste for the term "British" at this particular time (signifying, as it did, Scotland's gain of the English crown in 1603), whereas many Scots were either happy or non-plussed at the use of "British", it is likely that Adams was in fact a Scot.
