This book does exactly what it says on the tin.
It details the hugely significant piece of history that is the Declaration of Arbroath – a plea to the Pope to recognise Scotland’s independence in 1320.
For those without a vested interest in the topic, this will be heavy going.
It is pocket book-sized, but at only £4.99 that is to be expected. It could have done with more imagery to break up the walls of text.
That said, for budding history students this will prove a valuable addition to the bookshelves.
The Declaration of Arbroath, by Tom Turpie, published by Luath Press, £4.99.
