A fair point.

Something must have got lost in the edit, there.

History Extra-

"Robert the Bruce's landmark victory over the English at the battle of Bannockburn has secured his place as a hero in the annals of Scottish history. Speaking to Rachel Dinning, historian Helen Carr chronicles the story of the battle and its aftermath"


PS The '18th century media' crosspost was a fat fingers moment I can't undo.

Who was the more culpable out of Johnson and Nixon 1964-1974?

At Bannockburn? Johnson without question. As accounts from poorly informed English nationalists with no grasp of any aspect of battle (or much understanding of a horse) and a desire to find excuses for defeat the podcast is not all that bad……kind of…..ish…
If only there was a body of academic work by appropriate scholars that could be consulted.

I have no idea what is going on with these misdirected posts – perhaps le beurrge – but the fragrant Helen's references to, "Well, a pony really" and King Robert's "mace," obliged me to pause chopping onions momentarily while I shouted at the smart speaker.

I felt some among us might enjoy the reference to the "hedghog schiltrons."

Those would be 'Sonic' the hedgehog schiltrons. Not that I'm a well-qualified research-historian-type expert on the Scottish wars of the early 14th century but I …..oh wait….I AM a well- qualified etc……

Yes, I heard that
