Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites: Souvenir Guide
By (author) David Forsyth; By (author) Maureen Barrie
In the summer of 1745 ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’, grandson of James VII and II landed on the Isle of Eriskay in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. He would be the Jacobite Stuarts’ last hope in the fight to regain the three kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland.The exhibition Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh 23 June-12 November 2017) will tell a compelling story of love, loss, exile, rebellion and retribution and will challenge many of the misconceptions that still surround this turbulent period in European history.This souvenir guide takes the reader around the exhibition and showcases the wealth of objects on display.
David Forsyth is a Senior Curator in the Department of Scottish History and Archaeology, National Museums Scotland.
