The new Dynamic Edition of the Declaration of Arbroath shows you the different versions of the Declaration which were available to be read in medieval Scotland.
It is the first edition which not only provides a text and translation of the iconic 'file copy' but also reveals how the text changed and rewritten as it was circulated and copied in Scotland in the central Middle Ages.
Far from the Declaration surviving in a single version, there are in fact six different versions of the Declaration which we know were circulating in medieval Scotland. This edition represents all of them. See our video on this exciting new edition of this iconic document.
