In October Dunbar Castle was the subject of a film made by Arte*, fronted by Dunbar's well-known historian, Roy Pugh, who explained the story of Black Agnes, the castle's many French connections over the centuries and the 'Auld Alliance'. Filming took place at the Battery on Lamer Island, probably the main site used to deploy Edward III's catapults during the siege between January and June 1338. The film's release date is not yet decided but we'll let you know! It should eventually be available free online
