    Free (but ticketed) event at the National Museum:

    Creating Scotland: Assembling a Medieval Kingdom
    October 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    "Lecture: In conversation with Hamish Torrie FSA Scot (The Glenmorangie Company), Dr Adrian Maldonado (National Museums Scotland) and Dr Heather Pulliam (University of Edinburgh)

    The medieval kingdom called Scotland was not a predestined or obvious outcome of the politics of the first millennium AD. Even in the twelfth century, Britain north of the Tweed was a patchwork of laws, languages and identities. Do the art and artefacts of the 9-12th century provide a different perspective on the formation of a feudal kingdom? This conversation event discusses the impact of ten years of the Glenmorangie Research Project at National Museums Scotland, and the unique perspective which comes from a focus on the material culture."
