But who were they? The collaborative project ‘The Community of the realm in Scotland, 1249-1424: history, law and charters in a recreated kingdom’ will run an interactive afternoon of public history will highlight current research on Newbattle and its early history, and show participants how to use the database to write new histories.
Speakers and Workshop Leaders:
Dr Alice Taylor and Dr Matthew Hammond (King’s College London); Professor Dauvit Broun and Dr Joanna Tucker (University of Glasgow). The venue is wheelchair-accessible. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for specific requirements.
