Anglo-Scottish Relations: 1603-2019

with William Tyler MBE

Classes & Courses

From the simmering conflict between the two nations throughout The Middle Ages, Scotland’s King finally became England’s King too in 1603. Yet the two countries were not legally united until 1707.  That Union has changed in recent years with devolution, and the possibility of reverting to a pre-1603 political situation is now far from impossible to imagine. This history embraces many facets of British life, from The Civil War of the mid-17th century, to the Jacobite Rebellions of the early 18th, to The Scottish intellectual and scientific Enlightenment, and Scottish industrialisation, to the shared experience of empire, and two world wars.
