Dundee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3574 words)
From 1975, the city was the administrative centre of Tayside Region, and was itself administered as one of the districts of that region.
Dundee celebrated its 800th anniversary in 1991, and is known as the 'City of Discovery' in honour of the RRS Discovery, Robert Falcon Scott's famous Antarctic exploration vessel [1], which was built in the city.
Dundee became a walled city in 1545 during a period of English hostilities known as the rough wooing (Henry VIII's violent attempt to extend his Protestant ambitions north by marrying his youngest son Edward, Duke of Cornwall to Mary, Queen of Scots).
