This strand of four sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations from the 13th to the 16th centuries. This first session will look at aspects of Anglo-Scottish warfare in the 14th century, examining: how the Scottish invasion of Ireland in the early 14th century left irreparable damage and changed the relationship between Ireland and England; the composition of the division of the Scottish army at the Battle of Halidon Hill led by John Randolph, Earl of Moray; and the truth, or otherwise, of the contention that, despite their prominence in Anglo-Scottish warfare, the lower orders were usually excluded from the aristocratic chivalric ethos.
