About this Event

'For glory, riches and honours: the rocky road to the Declaration of Arbroath'

The Declaration of Arbroath is one of the most iconic relics of medieval Scotland. It is also the most eloquent statement of the case for a nation's claim to freedom produced anywhere in medieval Europe. Its place in Scotland's heart is not in doubt. But why was the document produced in the first place, what was it designed to achieve and did it work? Fiona Watson will explore exactly these questions to illuminate a stirring defence of nationhood that is not entirely as it seems.
