‘Prizes, Prisoners and Propaganda in the Anglo-Scottish war of the Rough Wooings, 1543-50′ – TONIGHT – 6:30pm – Gordon Cameron

The Fitzwilliam History Society will be holding its final event of the term on Tuesday 25th November at 6.30pm in the Gordon Cameron Lecture Theatre at Fitzwilliam College.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Amy Blakeway of Homerton College. Dr Blakeway will be giving a talk entitled: ‘Prizes, Prisoners and Propaganda in the Anglo-Scottish war of the Rough Wooings, 1543-50′. The ‘Rough Wooings’, a war between England and Scotland fought over the question of Mary, Queen of Scots’ marriage has long been acknowledged as significant by historians.

Much of this work has relied upon the exceptional survival of a range of documents telling the in the English archives. Unsurprisingly, however, these documents only tell one side of the story. Until recently, the Scottish experience of the war has been relatively ignored. This paper will use new source material discovered in the archives of Scotland and of her ally, France, to examine Scottish propaganda and English prisoners captured by the Scots. These two case studies which help to uncover the lost Scottish experience of this intense conflict.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow for what promises to be a fantastic talk. Wine and nibbles provided.
