This strand of three sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations from the 13th to the 16th centuries, discussing how interactions between Englishmen and Scots, and their perceptions of each other, were shaped by a period of peaceful co-existence followed by intermittent but persistent hostilities. The second session will discuss the relationship between English and Scottish legal literature; Scottish opinions and reactions to English attempts to deal with difficult kings, from Magna Carta to the 1290's; and the differing strands of Anglo-Scottish relations in the early 16th century, as exemplified by the career of Margaret Tudor.
