Bonnie Prince Charlie & the Jacobites - Meet the military: Jacobite
From Fiona Buckland
In this short film recorded at the National Museum of Scotland, costumed interpreter and historian, Arran Johnston is dressed as a Jacobite to demonstrate and discuss examples of their weapons and battle tactics.
As you watch Arran, think about the objects we have encountered so far in this course – the broadsword (or backsword), starting with the one inscribed ‘For God, my country and James VIII’, to the elaborate 21st birthday gift to Prince Charles Edward Stuart.
Think also about the Prince’s Highland targe and the wall of targes on display in Viccy’s welcome film at the start of this week.
