In the six decades before 1357 Scotland had been a land of war. While the ten years from 1322 provided an interlude of relative peace, the overall character of the period was set by conflict. The impact of these wars stretched far beyond the actual campaigning, and meant that much of Scottish society had altered to meet the needs of ongoing warfare. The issues arising from the years of major war would continue to dominate events and attitudes in Scotland throughout the late 1350s and 1360s. The result of the period was to see the working-out of the legacy of war, confirming and making plain the changes to the kingdom and community.
