Carberry Hill, encounter at

Carberry Hill, encounter at, 1567. Mary, queen of Scots' marriage to Bothwell in May 1567 provoked widespread protest. They took refuge in Borthwick castle to the south of Edinburgh but were forced to flee. On 15 June at Carberry Hill, east of the city, they were confronted by a superior force. While negotiations continued, Mary's troops began to desert. Bothwell fled north and finished up in lifelong captivity in Denmark. Mary was imprisoned in Lochleven castle and, on 24 July, abdicated in favour of her infant son James.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
