Description

See through Archie Reid’s camera, the ruins that once housed Mary Queen of Scots from the cradle to her house arrest. If these stones could speak they would tell tragic tales. Let David Beal be your guide as he recounts this infamous story of two defiant monarchs ensnared in a web of plots, intrigue and paranoia.

Notes

Mary occupied herself with embroidery during her long imprisonment, the title of this film comes from one of her hand stitched mottos.
