I sent my email away, returned a message saying that the offices were closed and would return on the 6th January. Hope they've not forgotten to turn their holiday filters off!

Today 24th May 2015 the Battle of Bannockburn walks recommenced. Thanks to members of this forum and others, we helped in discovering the location of the actual battlefield itself. Our metal detecting find recoveries play a very important part in the conclusions reached as to where the actual battle took place. If you wish to participate in one of the walks advertised in the attached download, a chance to have a family day out,details are in the download.

On this day in year 1314 the armies of Robert The Bruce defeated the much larger forces of King Edward II of England. Photographed below is just one of the battlefield associated artefacts members of this forum recovered. I believe our members found the three most important finds recovered during the two year survey.

The BBC director of the Bannockburn 700 program emigrated shortly after we all finished our part in the survey Lee. possibly the reason he never got round to sending you a copy.

                                                                                 https://vimeo.com/96892814

                                  Got your popcorn Lee ?  sit back and watch the program live just download the above.
