Scottish History one-day course

For history enthusiasts … particularly those who like thinking about the 13th Century in Scotland and England.

Heavy sigh … wish I didn’t live so far away.   However, that being said, I thought I would share this knowledge and post this event on here as it looks interesting and it is FREE.

Friday, August 23, 2013 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm with Professor Dauvit Broun at the University of Glasgow.

  1. I don’t think I realised that Glasgow University was that old. I completely agree with the comments about Glasgow being a friendly place, I think they pride themselves on that and rightly so.

  2. I have to say that, although that video is clearly a promotional exercise, I think what they say about the university and the friendliness of the city is true. I guess I’ll find out soon!

Looking forward to hearing from you
