Vote for Bannockburn victory
07 Dec 2015
A project to discover the site of the Battle of Bannockburn is up for a prestigious archaeology award, but it needs your vote to take victory. This is the latest in a long list of accolades to have been awarded to the project to transform the site of the 1314 battle.
In the run up to the battle’s 700th anniversary, the National Trust for Scotland, Glasgow University Archaeological Research Division, Stirling Council and the BBC joined forces to seek out new finds that would help pinpoint the battlefield.
They enlisted the help of hundreds of local volunteers in their task and the results were transmitted in a special two-part documentary on the BBC which re-united Two Men in a Trench, Tony Pollard and Neil Oliver.
Now the project needs the help of the public once again. In order to secure Current Archaeology’s Archaeology Project of the Year award, people have been asked to choose their favourite from a shortlist of six.
