A warm welcome to our themed Jacobite special, published to mark the 300th anniversary of the birth of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. We are honoured to feature contributions from world-class experts in the field of Jacobitism and I hope you’ll enjoy our wide range of articles, taking in everything from the enigma that was James VII/II through to Jacobite espionage and ‘petticoat patronage’ of the Stuart cause.

Tenement House, cared for by National Trust for Scotland, allows visitors to find out what life was like for tenement dwellers. Ana Sanchez takes us through tenement features and explains what they tell us. Cornices This Victorian feature adds a decorative feature to the top of a living room whilst also protecting the outside stonework, and blocking noise from neighbouring flats. Ceiling roses Interestingly, some tenement flats had these placed slightly off centre, to help bounce the light off mirrors and make the room appear bigger.…
