Battle of Bannockburn part 2

For those interested in this part of Scotland's history, SBS is showing a two part BBC series - The Quest for Bannockburn. Through archaeological research, early accounts of the battle from the Scots and the English  plus re-enactments the program attempts to establish where the battle took place as well as details of the battle itself which took place 700 years ago.

The first part of this program was shown on SBS on Sunday 4 January and can be viewed on SBS On Demand until 18 January. The second part will be shown next Sunday, 11 January, on SBS at 7.30 pm.

This was one of several programs made to commemorate the Battle of Bannockburn between the Scots and the English on 23 and 24 June 1314.
