Happy Tartan Day

Happy Tartan Day!

Many events celebrating Tartan Day occurred last weekend, but others are still to come.

Go here for a list of events in the United States, here for a list in Canada.  See what's happening at Tartan Week in New York City here.

Read more about the Declaration of Arbroath, signed today in 1320, here and a translation here, both from the National Archives of Scotland. If you are interested in possible connections between the Declaration and the Declaration of Independence read For Freedom Alone: The Declaration of Arbroath, 1320 by Edward J. Cowan (my dissertation supervisor).
