In this chapter we examine fifty news items relating to the Declaration of Arbroath published between 1996 and 2019 in thirteen languages. The SNP’s 2013 white paper proved to be a turning point, with Alex Salmond’s visit to Arbroath on 18 August 2014 being the key moment as far as media interest in the Declaration is concerned. We examine the philosophical and political discourses which emerged in the UK and elsewhere, as well as a strong presence of discourses of origin in the United States.
