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 third session will examine the impact of piracy on Anglo-Scottish relations; the comparative relations of Crown and nobility in the two realms; and the relatively untapped parallel themes of manhood, masculinity and coming of age to cast new light onto Anglo-Scottish relations.
