A Public Lecture, Linlithgow Burgh Halls, 24 April 2013, 7.00pm-9.00pm

Greg Walker, Regius Professor of Rhetoric at the University of Edinburgh and Principal Academic on The Three Estates project, will introduce the play, its dramatic and social contexts. He will suggest why the play was so important to Sir David Lyndsay that he rewrote and restaged it three times in different locations, and why it has remained so important – and controversial – in Scotland ever since.

Adrian Cox, Historic Scotland’s Cultural Resources Advisor, will give a brief overview of the settings for the play – Linlithgow Palace and the royal park or Peel – describing their historical and archaeological significance.”
