The Abdication of Mary, Queen of Scots by Gavin Hamilton (1723-1798) held in The Hunterian’s Collection.

Welcome to the project website for ‘In my end is my beginning’, a two-year research network examining the ways in which Mary Queen of Scots (1542-1587) has been remembered and re-imagined in Scottish popular culture since her removal from power in 1567 to the present day. The project is funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh and led by Dr Steven Reid and Ms Anne Dulau-Beveridge at the University of Glasgow.
