Mary Queen of Scots' death warrant on display

The only surviving copy of the death warrant of Mary Queen of Scots has been presented by the first minister Alex Salmond to Blairs Museum, near Aberdeen.

The document was acquired by the library of the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace for £72,485, with the help of heritage bodies' donations. It was presented to Scotland following discussions between the Archbishop of Canterbury, the first minister and Cardinal O'Brien.
