Words of War Book Festival |Kathleen Lyle in conversation with Dr Paul Philippou

The Black Watch Castle and Museum, Perth
22nd September | 1.30pm-2.30pm
The Jacobite occupation of Perth

In August 1715, the 6th Earl of Mar raised the Jacobite standard at Braemar. On 16 September, Perth was captured without battle and for a few months became the Jacobite’s headquarters. Kathleen Lyle will discuss with Dr Paul Phililppou the occupation of Perth: how the people and the surrounding countryside coped with an occupying army, to which they were largely hostile, and how the Jacobites dealt with their increasingly isolated and difficult situation. Afore the Highlands is borne of Kathleen’s extensive research for a Masters in History at Oxford University.
