RECALLING THE HISTORY OF SOUTH-WEST SCOTLAND

RECALLING THE HISTORY OF SOUTH-WEST SCOTLAND

In June 1928 Glasgow staged a great pageant entitled "The Story of the West," at Garscube. It opened with the legend of Queen Languoreth and closed with the year 1745, when Prince Charles visited Glasgow. The episode depicted here is that of the Picts repelling Viking invaders during the reign of Malcolm III (c. 1025-93), who was known as Canmore or Great Head. It was this Scottish king who slew Macbeth at Lumphanan, August 15, 1057. His reign was mostly occupied by fighting, for he invaded England repeatedly.
