Fortress of the Kingdom
Archaeology and Research at Edinburgh Castle.
Fortress of the Kingdom is the detailed history of this great castle – a reflection of its colourful and complex story, through its buildings and the lives of its occupants.
Edinburgh Castle is one of the most famous monuments in Scotland. From modern shortbread tins and tea towels to historic paintings, prints and maps, its image has long been on prominent public display.
Yet for all its familiarity as an iconic symbol of Scottish history, the detail of that history and the story of those within its walls – whether princes or prisoners – are far less well appreciated.
Over some 30 years, archaeological, architectural and historical research has been carried out alongside a steady programme of repair, restoration and maintenance. This has enabled the often fragmentary traces of the castle’s evolution and community to be threaded together as a complete narrative.
