The Killing Fields of Scotland - AD83 to 1746Hardback
This product is available.
Most people are familiar with references to Scottish battles such as Bannockburn and Flodden but know little if anything about those events. Rugby and soccer fans outside Scotland may wonder at the sign 1314 held up by Scottish fans and not know that it is the date of the Battle of Bannockburn when an English king was defeated on Scottish soil. The battle is also commemorated in Scotland's unofficial national anthem, The Flower of Scotland. That flower perished at Flodden, in Northumberland, in 1513 when King James IV of Scotland was among the many thousands of The Flowers of the Forest to fall in battle. This book tells the stories of these battles and many others fought in Scotland from the Roman victory at Mons Graupius in AD 83 to the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie at Culloden Moor in 1746
