This strand of four sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations from the 13th to the 16th centuries. This third session will look at Anglo-Scottish relations in the 15th and 16th centuries, examining: Edward IV's relations with Scotland and whether he had a conscious policy or simply maintained the rhetoric of English kings that the Scots were rebels; the Welsh and Irish aspects, and impacts, on Anglo-Scottish relations in the 1530s, and the dynamic four-way relationship between Scottish, English, Irish and Welsh peoples; and the strategic measures that James VI of Scotland took in his foreign policy and diplomacy in order to secure the English throne.
