This conference is the culmination of a series of workshops on early medieval Kingship and its attendant rituals funded by a grant from the Royal Society of Edinburgh. It aims to explore the diverse range of evidence for early medieval of kingship and ritual in Scotland within a wider European setting and thus bring new light to an under researched area. Contributions come from a range of disciplines, including archaeology, art history, history and onomastics. Despite the excellent research to date, particularly across Europe, the physical dynamics of how kingship operated in Scotland and how it related to the rest of Europe remains under-explored.
