Dr Wormald is an Honorary Fellow of the University of Edinburgh. She was a Lecturer in Scottish History in the University of Glasgow, and then Fellow in History, St Hilda's College, Oxford. Her original research was on the aristocracy and lairds of late-medieval and early-modern Scotland. She then turned her attention to the problems of British History, and has been working particularly on the reign of James VI and I. She has published extensively in these fields, and found them endlessly fascinating (with the one exception of a book on Mary Queen of Scots which, she says, was a tedious enterprise). Lately she has moved into the field of Ecclesiastical History, which she finds equally exciting. Her lecture will be partly drawn from this recent work.

Refreshments will be served after the Lecture
