History - In the heart of the Jacobites

The Scottish Parliament is hosting a major new exhibition on the history of the Jacobite movement, Rebels with a Cause: The Jacobites and the Global Imagination.

The exhibition, which is free, features rarely seen artefacts from the University of Aberdeen's collection, and explores and challenges the traditionally-accepted history of the Jacobites, as well as looking at their legacy around the globe.

The exhibition also delves into the lives of figures such as Flora MacDonald and Hugh Mercer, and highlights the enduring impact of the Jacobites on Scottish history, literature, culture, art and music.

Rebels with a Cause runs until Saturday, January 8, 2011.
