Jackson Armstrong

Jackson Armstrong

Jackson teaches medieval and early modern history at the the School of Divinity, History and Philosophy, University of Aberdeen. He is interested in Scotland and England in the period 1300-1600, and especially in the ligatures of local societies (including ideas of kinship), relations with ‘centres’ of political power, and frameworks of law and related aspects of government. His work also takes in chivalry, heraldry and the law and office of arms.

Jackson said “I look forward to working with the Section and the wider Society in the next few years, continuing and strengthening our programme of activities in the region. It has been an honour to work with Finlay McKichan who, during his time as Chair, did a tremendous job of leading the Section and representing it at the national level. On behalf of the entire Section I should like to extend to Finlay a warm vote of thanks.”
