From Dunbar to Durham

When human remains were found in Durham in 2013, archaeologists discovered that they belonged to the Scottish Soldiers – prisoners of war from the 1650 Battle of Dunbar who were marched to Durham and imprisoned in the then-disused Cathedral and Castle.

Woven Bones is a new production, written by Laura Lindow, which offers a unique chance to walk in their shoes as it tours the route marched by the soldiers from Dunbar to Durham.  Developed by Cap-a-Pie in partnership with Durham University ahead of a major new exhibition opening in summer 2018, Woven Bones brings to life the untold stories of these Scottish Soldiers. It will be performed in Berwick at The Maltings on Friday 29 June 2018.
