Most of you know I live on a battlefield . The Battle of Bannockburn, 1314, when Robert the Bruce fought Edward the second, there is a lot of information here and also an IQ test for his time, hope you find it as interesting as I did xx ............ .......... http://heritage.scotsman.com/greatscots.cfm?id=946462007

I got my little bit of history for the morning. I am reading some historical novels that predate Robert the Bruce by about 500 years. I enjoy my history served up in other than text books. Like your post this morning. It looks like from the comments it is still stirring things up a bit. Do you ever feel that there are ghosts from the battle around, or not. I would be an "or not" person, but I know some people are sensitive to those things.

I do believe that there are ghosts pal yes , but I have never sensed anything about own own house , My Hubby just loves history too, the statue in the picture is just 5 minutes walk from our house xxxx

This is great. You should post a summary and this link in the Genealogy Interest group since there are some of us members who are researching Robert the Bruce. I know I got some good linage information on him and his family. I now have to see if and how it ties into my family history. Thank you for sharing this information. Very helpful.
