🎧 The Massacre of Glencoe
🎧 Not Just the Tudors • 37m
In the early hours of 13 February 1692, in the rugged and beautiful mountains of Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands, some 30 members and associates of Clan MacDonald were massacred by the Scottish army. It was a political act, a consequence of the so-called "Glorious Revelation" of 1688-1689. But even by the standards of the time what happened at Glencoe was considered an atrocity and an act of mass murder.
In this edition of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb marks the 330th anniversary of the massacre with Dr. Allan Kennedy from the University of Dundee.
