Research Overview

One of Dr Macdonald's key research interests is Anglo-Scottish relations in the later middle ages. His doctoral thesis on Anglo-Scottish conflict between 1369 and 1403 has now been published as a monograph. This research feeds into other areas of interest, such as Scotland's place in the wider world of European diplomacy and the development and nature of European frontier societies. His main research project at present is to examine the nature and impact of war on state and society in later medieval Scotland.
