Dr Anna Groundwater
Principal Curator, Renaissance and Early Modern History @National Museums Scotland
Dr Anna Groundwater is responsible for the Scottish collections from 1450 to 1750, which include objects associated with the Stuart dynasty, Scotland's nobility, and prosperous merchants, but also the daily life of Scottish people in the towns and country. Highlights include objects related to Mary, Queen of Scots, the Stewart kings in England, and Bonnie Prince Charlie, but a personal favourite is the collection of delicate clay pipes, a more everyday item. She is a specialist in the Scottish Borders, the Union of the Crowns, and the lives of Mary, and her son James VI and I.  Dr Groundwater previously worked at the University of Edinburgh, lecturing in Scottish and British history, the digital humanities, and cultural and public history. Her recent publications include Scotland Connected: a Timeline for Scottish History in the Wider World (Luath, 2017), and she wrote the foreword and afterword for the republication of Jenny Wormald’s Mary Queen of Scots: a Study in Failure.
