PoMS is being expanded!
The royal charters of Robert I (1306-29), David II (1329-71) and Edward Balliol (ruled in opposition, 1332-56) are currently being added to the database and will appear soon on the public website as part of the AHRC-funded ‘Community of the Realm in Scotland, 1249-1424: history, law and charters in a recreated kingdom’ project.

Welcome to PoMS
This is a database of all known people of Scotland between 1093 and 1314 mentioned in over 8600 contemporary documents. The People of Medieval Scotland website is an outcome of three projects, The Paradox of Medieval Scotland (2007-2010) and The Breaking of Britain (2010-2013), funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and the Transformation of Gaelic Scotland in the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries (2013-2016), funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
