DESCRIPTION:

Ronald Ireland takes you on a journey through the mists of time.

The life of Peebles over the centuries mirrors the life and development of other Scottish burghs. As one of the original Royal Burghs of Scotland, its story reflects the life and times of Scotland itself, particularly in the medieval period, when it had a significant role as a place of religious pilgrimage and featured strongly in the reigns of the Stewart monarchs, who were frequent visitors.

In this talk, Ronald Ireland will explore aspects of the long history of Peebles since Roman times, based on his book Royal and Ancient Peebles, published in November 2021, under his own imprint, The Loaningwood Press. Unlike the several histories which have gone before, which have focused almost exclusively on the local scene, Ronald has told its story with a broader canvas, setting its life in the context of contemporary events in Scotland.
