Event description
Dr Matthew Hammond applies a new methodology - social network analysis - to consider how the Declaration of Arbroath barons were connected.

About this Event

Dr Matthew Hammond, Research Associate, King’s College London

The Declaration of Arbroath was a letter to Pope John XXII written in the name of Scotland's earls and barons. Who were the 39 noblemen who addressed the letter? Despite this show of unity in support of King Robert the Bruce, several of these men would be implicated in a plot to overthrow the king within just months of the Declaration's composition. In this lecture, Dr Matthew Hammond will apply a new methodology - social network analysis - to consider how the Declaration of Arbroath barons were connected to the king and to each other.
