Organiser:Andy King, Department of History, University of Southampton
Moderator/Chair:Alastair Macdonald, School of Divinity, History & Philosophy, University of Aberdeen

Since 2017, the IMC has played host to a series of strands focused on 'England and Scotland at War and Peace' which has become a staple of the Congress. These sessions have helped to create a new network of scholars interested in exploring the dynamics of Anglo-Scottish relations and comparisons throughout the Middle Ages. In this round table discussion, scholars from different thematic and chronological specialisms will discuss the state of the field and consider what future directions may lie ahead for research into the sometimes friendly, sometimes turbulent relations between the medieval kingdoms of Scotland and England.

Participants include Morvern French (Historic Environment Scotland, Edinburgh), Andy King (University of Southampton), Fergal Leonard (Durham University), Gordon McKelvie (University of Winchester), and Alice Taylor (King's College London).
