Siege of Berwick 1317-18 Fact into Fiction

Wednesday 13th October at 7.30 p.m.

Having spent over thirty years researching and writing
traditional history, mostly focused on medieval Scotland,
Dr Fiona Watson has turned her hand to writing historical
fiction for the first time. Inspired by a wealth of material
she couldn’t use in her non-fiction, she has spun a murder
mystery out of the fraught experience of those left in
Berwick-upon-Tweed, the only English-held town in
Scotland after Bannockburn. Fiona discusses the rewards
and difficulties in swapping straight History for fiction and
reads extracts from her book, Dark Hunter, which will be
published by Birlinn next year.
