Thursday 20th February
The Murder of James 1st of Scotland

David Bowler on James 1st

David Bowler
The king was murdered in Perth on 21st February 1437.
David's very informative and interesting talk detailed the circumstances leading up to it as well as the event itself and his subsequent burial in Perth. We learned that James had been among other things a very good tennis player - (real) tennis having then recently been invented. We gained an insight into the layout of Perth in those days and of the archaeology investigations which so far have been unsuccessful in finding to exact place where James was buried.
