The Scotland's History online debates are now closed.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed over the two years that they ran and made the debates lively, informative and engaging.
Debate: February is murder month in Scottish history. Lord Darnley, John Comyn, James I, William the 8th Earl of Douglas, Mary Queen of Scots, and the unfortunate inhabitants of Glencoe all met a brutal end in February. Do these killings tell us something about the Scottish psyche or merely about the politics of the age?
Lord Darnley's enemies finally catch up with him.
