Dramatic stills from a film trailer produced by the James I King of Scotland project have been released, depicting the events surrounding the murder of the medieval king on 22 February 1437 in Perth.

The University of Stirling, The University of the Highlands and Islands and The Glasgow School of Art have joined forces with Perth’s archaeology, heritage and cultural bodies in a project to locate and recreate the city’s lost Charterhouse and the Royal Tombs of the medieval Stewart dynasty which it contained.

The murder of King James I

The project aims to focus archaeological and historical research on the city of Perth to explore the precariousness, richness and diversity at the heart of the medieval kingdom at the time of the murder of King James I of Scots in 1437.

The new film trailer, produced by Paul Wilson (SimVis), was filmed at Historic Environment Scotland’s Castle Campbell at the end of January. It portrays the ordeal James I must have encountered during his assassination. The aim is to elevate the event and historical narrative into the public domain for those who might not have an intrinsic interest in conventional history.

Joan Queen of Scots (Hannah Donaldson) - 'You plotted this conspiracy in my husband’s shadow….  You will not be taxed for speech… Walter, Earl of Atholl has not (yet) lost his tongue.’

 

Walter Earl of Atholl (Tony Greengrass) - ‘I was told his eyes looked the same as his fathers did when he died.’

 

Who’s sorry now?!!!!! This image, after edit / VFX, will become a burning white hot crown
