Modern Veere (Netherlands), or 16thC Campvere. Site of much commerce with Scotland — it was the Scottish “staple” port (holding certain monopoly trading rights) from 1541, a privilege Bruges had enjoyed in the 15th century. See BBC, “Scotland in Europe,” In Search of Scotland (2001); John Davidson and Alexander Gray, The Scottish Staple at Veere: A Study in the Economic History of Scotland (1909).
