Quest for Bannockburn
Seven hundred years ago, Robert the Bruce's overwhelming victory over the English at the Battle of Bannockburn helped seal Scotland's future as an independent kingdom. How did the great Scottish warrior secure a victory against an army much stronger than his? And where exactly did this iconic battle take place? With the help of leading battlefield archaeologists, stuntmen, 21st century technology and a good old-fashioned spade, Neil Oliver and fellow archeologist Tony Pollard search for answers.
