For anyone with an interest in Scottish history, but without convenient access to source material, 'Scottish Historical Documents' will be welcomed as a valuable and informative collection of important references spanning some 1000 years in the country's history. it will also serve as an invaluable teaching air and research tool in Scottish history classes at university and school.

Commencing with extracts from Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the early 8th century and concluding in 1707 with the Articles of Union, all major documents are included. These range from the more famous, such as the Letter of barons of Scotland to Pope John XXII of 1320 (also known as The Declaration of Arbroath) to the less well known such as the Statues of Iona of 1609.

In total some 242 documents are covered which deal with all aspects of Scottish life including education, settlements of succession, poor acts, Kirk matters, land tenure, crown rentals, constitutional changes and the excise.

Over 240 documents are dealt with, from all aspects of Scots' History, covering education, settles of succession, the poor acts, Kirk matters, land tenure, crown rentals, and constitutional changes.
