Ruthless seaborne warriors plunder the north in their longships, a noble and his kin are slaughtered as they sup under a banner of truce, and a wall holds back hordes of painted warriors clamouring for battle. But this isn't Westeros, it's Scotland! Discover the cultures, castles and calamities in Scotland's history that match the Game of Thrones universe for every drop of blood spilled, from Tywin Lannister's real-life role model to a bridge that must be crossed at any cost. David C. Weinczok, heritage professional, castle explorer, writer and unabashed Game of Thrones geek, will talk about his use of live broadcasting to raise awareness of Scottish heritage.
