The period of crisis in Scotland following the death of Alexander III, and leading to the eventual conquest by Edward I, still excites controversy and discussion, not least about the role of William Wallace. During their work on the AHRC-funded project the Breaking of Britain, Professor Dauvit Broun and Dr John Davies have made important discoveries using documents in The National Archives and in a private collection in Norway.

Dauvit Broun is Professor of Scottish History at the University of Glasgow and Principal Investigator of the AHRC-funded projects, the 'Paradox of Medieval Scotland' and the 'Breaking of Britain'.

John Reuben Davies has published extensively on Scottish and Welsh ecclesiastical history, and is Research Associate at the University of Glasgow on the AHRC-funded projects, the 'Paradox of Medieval Scotland' and the 'Breaking of Britain'.
