About this Event

Andrew Redmond Barr

The Declaration of Arbroath was written in 1320 by the barons of Scotland to the Pope, asking him to recognise Scotland’s independence and acknowledge Robert the Bruce as the country’s lawful king. The Declaration has probably become Scotland’s most famous historical document. Ahead of its 700-year anniversary in 2020, artist and writer Andrew Redmond Barr launches his new book, The Illustrated Declaration of Arbroath, bringing this medieval document to life in new and unexpected ways.

In this event, Barr explores the history and legacy of the Declaration, and examines the role it continues to play in modern Scottish identity.
