A young nobleman and his kin are betrayed and slaughtered as they feast within the walls of a great castle. A wall severs the land in two, with civilisation and life on one side and barbaric horrors on the other – at least, so its builders believe. Sea wolves prowl the western shores, and a warrior-king strikes down his foe with a mighty axe during a nation-forging battle.

But, this isn’t Westeros – it’s Scotland!

Join author and presenter David C Weinczok for a talk based on his book, The History Behind Game of Thrones: The North Remembers. Discover the characters, battles, castles, archaeology and folklore from Scotland – with a special emphasis on the Edinburgh area – that wove their way into George R R Martin’s world of ice and fire.

During the renovations at Gladstone's Land, the Gladstone's Land Lecture Series will be taking place at the Georgian House.
