A medieval cry ...for Freedom!

The most famous document in Scotland’s history, a declaration of Scottish independence, was awarded special status by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).


The Declaration of Arbroath was written to the Pope in 1320, on behalf of the barons and community of the realm of Scotland. This eloquent letter, written in support of King Robert Bruce (Robert I) and an independent Scotland, is still regarded today as a spirited statement of a nation's claim to freedom.
