Britain and the beginning of Scotland

Lecture by Dauvit Broun

Given on December 5, 2013 at The British Academy

The often-repeated account of Scotland’s beginnings in a ‘union of Picts and Scots under Cinaed (Kenneth) mac Ailpín’ has been numerously called into doubt over the years. In this lecture Professor Dauvit Broun explores recent rethinking on Scottish origins by discussing the role of Britain as an ‘idea’, connections with England, the emergence of Scotland as a country in the 13th century, and the beginnings of the Scottish kingdom itself. Professor Broun will also examine if this has implications for how Scotland is viewed in relation to Britain today.

Dauvit Broun is Professor at the University of Glasgow. He has been lecturing on Scottish History since 1990 and has held the chair in Scottish History there since 2009.
