Bannockburn. Ever since Robert the Bruce expelled King Edward II of England from Scotland's borders in 1314, the very mention of that battleground continues to be the symbolic moment of emancipation for many Scots. For generations afterwards, Bruce's victory became the standard-bearer for Scotland's self-determination and right to rule
700 years later, Neil Oliver and Tony Pollard go in search of both the real and imagined Battle of Bannockburn. With the help of the country's greatest minds, 3D computer generated graphics and a good old fashioned spade - they chart the final nail-biting 48 hours and re-create the landscape and environment that determined this seismic moment in British history. In the process, they hope to discover the battle's true location.
