""The haggis is frequently assumed to be Scottish in origin though there is little evidence for this, and food writer Alan Davidson states that the Ancient Romans were the first people known to have made products of the haggis type. A kind of primitive haggis is referred to in Homer's Odyssey, in book 20, when Odysseus is compared to "a man before a great blazing fire turning swiftly this way and that a stomach full of fat and blood, very eager to have it roasted quickly." Haggis was "born of necessity, as a way to utilize the least expensive cuts of meat and the innards as well" (Andrew Zimmern). In times of famine people would eat whatever it was that they could get their hands on, which is how all those fascinating ingredients became a part of Scottish tradition.

Clarissa Dickson Wright repudiates the assumption of a Scottish origin for haggis, claiming that it "came to Scotland in a longship [ie. from Scandinavia] even before Scotland was a single nation.". Dickson-Wright further cites etymologist Walter William Skeat as further suggestion of possible Scandinavian origins: Skeat claimed that the hag– part of the word is derived from the Old Norse hoggva or the Icelandic haggw, meaning 'to hew' or strike with a sharp weapon, relating to the chopped-up contents of the dish. One theory claims that the name "haggis" is derived from Norman French. Norman French was more guttural than normal French so that the "ch" of "hachis", i.e. "chopped", was pronounced as the "ch" in "loch", giving "haggis".""

Off the top of my head the television invented by JLB bears little or no relation to the TV used up until plasma or LCD - invented by USA and Russia?

Marmalade was invented in Portugal or Spain.

There were steam engines in ancient times and were even in use before Watt.

Breech loading and rifling existed before Ferguson

Dunlop and Graham Bell were both American by Naturalisation althugh born in Scotland.

eddie1:

I'd like to see documentation that Mrs. Keiller (or someone else in that business) actually INVENTED marmalade. If she did, I'm not really surprised. I used to eat Keiller's marmalade with great relish (if that's the right word under the circumstances), but I found some years since that that brand, at least as I bought it here in the US, had lost its distinctive bitter tone, in favor of being too sweet. Still made from Seville oranges, according to the label, but it had changed.

I can readily believe that possibly what we get here is now purposely denatured in order to meet what the salespeople thought was American taste. Durn shame, if so! Durn shame, either way. Now it just tastes like everyone else's marmalade.

As a Scot, I am naturally modest about myself and all things Scottish but this may be of interest!
"The typical Englishman finishes his breakfast of toast and MARMALADE invented by Mrs. Keiller of Dundee, Scotland- and slips into his RAINCOAT patented by Charles MacIntosh of Glasgow, Scotland, he walks to his office along an English lane which is surfaced by TARMAC, invented by John MacAdam of Ayr, Scotland - or he drives his English car which is fitted with PNEUMATIC TYRES patented by John Boyd Dunlop of Dreghorn, Scotland
Before he acquired a car he used to travel to the office by train which was powered by a STEAM ENGINE that was invented by James Watt of Greenock, Scotland.
In his office he deals with the mail bearing ADHESIVE STAMPS invented by James Chalmers of Dundee, Scotland. He lights up a CIGARETTE first manufactured by Robert Gloag of Perth, Scotland. And makes freqent use of the TELEPHONE invented by Alexander Graham Bell, born in Edinburgh, Scotland.
...He rings his wife, She tells him that dinner will be his favorite, ROAST BEEF - Aberdeen Angus, raised in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
He arrives home to find the TELEVISION on, invented by John Logie Baird of Helensburgh, Scotland, with an article regarding a programme on the US NAVY founded by John Paul Jones of Kirkbean, Scotland while his son prefers to read TREASURE ISLAND written by Robert Louis Stevenson of Edinburgh, Scotland. Meanwhile outside his daughter plays in the garden on her toy BICYCLE, an invention of Kirkpatrick MacMillan, of Thornhill, Scotland.
It is impossible for an Englishman to escape the ingenuity of the Scot's!
In desperation he could turn to the BIBLE only to find that the first named mentioned in the good book is a Scot - King James VI who authorized its translation.
He could of course take to drink, but only Scotland make the finest WHISKY in the world. Nearing the end of his tether he thinks about ending it all, he could put his head in the oven - however COAL GAS was discovered by William Murdoch of Ayr, Scotland. He could use a rifle to shoot himself but his BREECH LOADING RIFLE was invented by Captain Pat Ferguson of Pitfours, Scotland. If unsuccessful he could be injected with PENICILLIN discovered by Alexander Fleming of Darvel, Scotland or given an ANAESTHETIC invented by Sir James Young Simpson of Bathgate, Scotland.
Out of the anaesthetic his mood would not be improved by his surgeon telling him, he was as safe as the BANK OF England which was founded by William Paterson, of Dumfries Scotland.
Perhaps, in order to get some peace, he should request a transfusion of guid Scottish blood so that he too would be entitled to ask:-
WHA'S LIKE US? DAMN FEW AND THEY'RE A' DEID!"

Of course the most important fact there is the absence of the letter "e" in whisky!

We visited Bletchley Park a few weeks ago.

Wonderful how for many many years our cousins claimed to have invented the computer, and sincerely believed it. The Official Secrets Act kept our code breaking ex telephone exchange quiet till a few years ago.

I was fascinated to see a reconstruction in use and working.

We could discuss whether the Babbage differential engine was a computer too, but the honours stay here I suppose.

You know, I think the title would be more accurate if it said "Inventions *believed* to be American- by Americans."

When you look up just about any of those listed inventions, it gives a correct attribution.

Somehow we - or at least, I know that I frequently do- at some stage become so familiar with a historical person or fact I just assume it came from our part of our world. In other words we don't claim it on purpose or out of malice or avidity.

(Other times, claims become more problematic. For instance, Alexander G Bell was born in Scotland, grew up in Canada, lived and worked and became famous in the USA, had a home in both Canada and the US, died in Canada. So just what was he?)

My grandparents would only use "genuine Bayer Aspirin." Now some 70 years later, I only buy Bayer Aspirin by habit.
I think the trademark value held up in the minds of many people.

I remember when Bayer Aspirin came with a folder of instructions in many languages, including Yiddish. As a child, I would compare these little instructions and try to pronounce the words.

per Freda Underhill:

1917 Aspro - A pain reliever based on aspirin was developed in Melbourne by George Nicholas. By 1940 it had become the world's most widely used headache and pain treatment.

The word "aspirin" should be rendered as "Aspirin", inasmuch as it was a trademark for acetylsalicilic (sp ??) acid, and thus the actual substance called "Aspirin" necessarily existed before that trademark was coined and owned by Bayer. If George Nicholas developed a pain reliever based on Aspirin, he didn't invent Aspirin (or aspirin), though he may have created a derivative compound of medical and thus commercial value.

Aspirin was what might be called the original wonder drug, with benefits in pain relief, fever treatment, blood thinning, and some other advantages. It was so valuable and so widely popular that the name was popularly thought to represent a generic substance, and so the trademark value of "Aspirin" was lost, long after 1917 and George Nicholas. Much to Bayer's chagrin.
