This painting depicts part of the English fortifications at Pinkie Battlefield, East Lothian, which were subsequently modified by Mary Queen of Scots in 1567 before she surrendered to the Scottish Lords.

This work forms the first of a series, some of which were exhibited in 1987 at the National Gallery of Modern Art during the Festival Exhibition, 'The Vigorous Imagination'. Many of Braham's works explore the conflict between man and nature and good and evil.
