This course will examine the background, events, and people involved with Charles Edward Stuart and the Jacobite Challenges, from the first rejection of the Protestant reign of William and Mary to the humiliating defeat and subsequent state-ordered reprisals after the battle of Culloden in 1746. The various attempts to restore the senior Catholic line of the Stuart dynasty will be considered, using a selection of songs and poetry associated with, or commemorating, the events.
The programme will include a self-guided visit to the exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland, followed by class discussion about the display and exhibits.
