FACT OF THE DAY

"Schoolboys can be a rowdy lot at the best of times, but in 1595 in Edinburgh, the lads of the city's High School took matters a bit too far when, during a riot, Bailie (or magistrate) John MacMorran as shot and killed by one William Sinclair. The reason for the riot? A proposal to reduce the school holidays. Bailie MacMorran's house can still be seen in Edinburgh's Lawnmarket area to this day."
