The humble beginnings of the Scottish parliament
can be traced back to the 12th century and the official website
of the new Scottish Parliament offers a good chronicle. You
can discover how the Treaty of the Union in 1707 changed Scotland’s
politics and how the Scots' role in the new British Parliament
at Westminster developed.
