What use is it to be given authority over man and land if others donít know about it? Furthermore, what use is that authority if those who know about it do not respect it? These questions have been crucial since regulations for governance entered society. In the years prior to 1603 Scotland developed a unique relationship between the people and its figures of authority. The aim of this workshop is to open up a debate on the purposes and methods used to present this authority in Scotland before the union of the crowns in 1603.
