Scottish Burials & Other Events

NEWS

It may be time to take another look at the Events Listing on the website of the National Library of Scotland.  There are quite a few talks, etc., coming up over the next few months, and they all have to be booked in advance.

Staying in Scotland, DeceasedOnline are set to make a big announcement regarding Scottish burial records at the forthcoming SAFHS Conference - see here.  Not sure if this relates to one of their recent record releases, or is something new altogether.

A couple of July issues have been released in the last day or two.  The latest editions of HistoryToday and WDYTYA? Magazine are now available.  The latter are also running a competition, here.

MEDIA NEWS

TV & Radio for the next few days can be found here.

OTHER STUFF

HistoryToday's 'This Week in History' can be viewed here.

And, for something a bit out-of-the-ordinary, how about '10 Strange Ways Tudors Died' from the BBC!

ON THIS DAY

1215:  King John's Royal Seal is applied to the Magna Carta;
1381:  Leader of the Peasants' Revolt, Wat Tyler, beheaded in London;
1520:  Martin Luther is excommunicated by Pope Leo X.
