The Declaration of Arbroath
My topic for my ‘Girl in a Cage’ research project was the Declaration of Arbroath. The Declaration of Arbroath is a treaty that the Scottish nobles and clergy wrote to the Pope John XXII of England that was supposedly written by Bernard of Kilwinning, Chancellor of Scotland, and Abbot of Arbroath. It was a statement of independence and freedom from Scotland, who was trying to become an emerging country. This declaration is also known as the Declaration of Independence (in Scotland). When it was being sent to the Pope John XXII, they sealed the letter with eight earls and thirty-one barons. This is the things that I learned about the Declaration of Arbroath.
