Increasingly close contacts between Scotland and England, notably through the Union of the Crowns and the later Union of the Parliaments, created modern Britain and made the Scots ‘British’. The major focus will be on the political, religious and military processes which transformed Scotland from an independent European power in 1500 to a part of a ‘Greater Britain’ in 1707 - a process which was never inevitable.
