Stirling Palace is one of the finest Renaissance buildings in Britain, begun in about 1538 for the young King James V and his wife, Mary of Guise. This book explores how revolutionary new ideas, coming from Europe and embraced by James and his Court, influenced the creation of this magnificent building. In parallel, Harrison also reveals the details of the major project, begun in 2001, to restore the interiors of the Palace to their former glory.
