Abstract

England and Scotland remained formally at war throughout the later Middle Ages (save for two very short-lived peace treaties). This strand of three sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations in this period, discussing how interactions between Englishmen and Scots, and their perceptions of each other, were shaped by intermittent but persistent hostilities. This session will focus on the 15th and 16th centuries, examining the impact on Anglo-Scottish relations of James Douglas’ rebellion against James II; and the dealings with the Scots of English officials in the Anglo-Scottish Marches during the reigns of Henry VII and Henry VIII.
