Abstract

This round table aims to provide a forum for the discussion of the themes and ideas arising from the ‘England and Scotland at Peace and War in the Later Middle Ages’ sessions in this and last year’s Congresses and in Anglo-Scottish relations more generally. What were the issues which shaped these relations over the long durĂ©e, from 1286 until the Union of the Crowns, and what are the continuities and discontinuities across the period? Can we identify new approaches or gaps in the current scholarship? Has there been too much focus on war? What differing perspectives can historians of the two realms, and indeed of other European polities, offer to each other? And what can the study of Anglo-Scottish relations offer to medieval studies more generally?

Participants include Stephen Boardman (University of Edinburgh), Andy King (University of Southampton), and Alastair Macdonald (University of Aberdeen).
