Dr Fiona Watson
I am an honorary research fellow in History at the University of Dundee, having been a senior lecturer in History and director of the Centre for Environmental History at the University of Stirling until 2006. I now write, present the odd radio programme and work as curator in Abbot House, a heritage centre in Dunfermline, as well as teaching at Dundee.
Originally my work focussed on the wars of independence between Scotland and England in the 13th and 14th centuries, but most recently I have published a book on the real Macbeth, king of Scots between 1040 and 1058. This research forms the basis of the level 4 course I teach in Dundee, introducing students to the intriguing world of early medieval Scotland.
