Schiltron: Flodden era

Saturday 16 December 2017 to Sunday 18 March 2018

Edinburgh Castle

A group hold schiltron spikes and a young child gasped in amazement.

Edinburgh castle is steeped in war. From here James IV set out to Flodden in 1513 and in the troubled years that followed Edinburgh was the focus in the power struggles between the powerful Douglas and Hamilton families.

Come and see how the Scots of this era fought with pikes in schiltrons and have a go yourself. 

An event for the whole family to get involved in and enjoy.

Included in admission price.
