GUARD Archaeology is supporting a community dig at the site of the Battle of Stirling Bridge this weekend, led by Stirling Council Archaeologist Murray Cook. This will be the first ever archaeological excavation to be undertaken at this battlefield site.
The Battle of Stirling Bridge which took place in 1297 is one of the most famous battles in the Scottish Wars of Independence. The Scottish army led by William Wallace and Andrew de Moray won a decisive victory over English forces led by John de Warenne, the Earl of Surrey.
The excavation runs from the 29th June to the 1st of July 2012.
