Video - King James I of Scotland project

889d7f00-816f-4bee-ad6f-633181770856

In this new video Professor Richard Oram (University of Stirling) and Danny Dutton (Scotland's Urban Past) discuss the newly discovered remains of The Blackfriars Priory where James I of Scotland was brutally murdered, the thinking regarding the human stories and analysis of the remaining structure, and their impact upon the rapidly developing James I / Charterhouse project.

Richard and Danny reveal the fascinating mysterious blocked doorway that has been revealed - asking the intriguing question, was this possibly the escape route James I had unfortunately blocked, and which became the reason for his final entrapment and murder? 

The King James I Charterhouse Project is working to reappraise the extraordinary importance of Perth's place in history through fresh archaeological discoveries and cutting-edge historical interpretations.

Watch King James Official Opening Richard Oram in discussion with Danny Dutton:
