More info

The Battle of Bannockburn was a turning point in history, for the English as well as the Scots. This medieval battle helped define the political landscape of Britain. For many Scots this seminal moment from their past has become a patriotic talisman, even though the romantic myths which surround it have all but obscured what really happened.

Seven centuries later debates on national identity and Scottish independence will inevitably be inflenced by the events of 1314.

This landmark study, published to celebrate its 700th anniversary, is a clear and compelling account of Bannockburn, without the political spin, tartan-clad embellishment or dry academic obfuscation. In short, this is what every Scot should know before they cast their vote in 2014.
