Friday 24 August, 10:00-11:00, Committee Room 1, FREE
This talk by Dr Amanda Beam-Frazier of the University of Glasgow complements the Wallace exhibition in the Scottish Parliament. She will focus on efforts by the Scots, including William Wallace, to restore John Balliol as king of Scots after his abdication in 1296. She will also consider Balliol's own desire to return to the Scottish throne, and the political and diplomatic context from 1299 to 1302.
Please take a few minutes to view our additional events within History @ FoP including a Debating Chamber session on Sir William Wallace on Friday 24 August.
