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 third session will examine the influence of the Declaration of Arbroath of 1320, and the its influence on the development of bonds as a political tool in later medieval Scotland; the interplay of lordship and national government on the Anglo-Scottish Marches in the late-15th and early-16th centuries; and the establishment of a resident English ambassador to the Scottish court in the late-16th century.
