While driving to a meeting yesterday I chanced to hear most of an interesting radio programme about the Battle of Bannockburn http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00y2srx
For those of you even less familiar then me with this period, Bannockburn (1314) saw the English army under Edward II get a good kicking. Not that I am in any way biased.
Joining Melvyn Bragg to discuss the battle, what caused it and it's effects were:
Matthew Strickland - Professor of Medieval History at the University of Glasgow
Fiona Watson - Honorary Research Fellow in History at the University of Dundee
Michael Brown - Reader in History at the University of St Andrews
The link above will take you to the BBC's 'listen again' facility and a useful reading list - I expect it'll be available for about a week.
