Description:

In 1298 a major battle took place just south-east of medieval Falkirk. There is still a debate going on where exactly the battle was fought.

The English, still smarting after their disastrous defeat at Stirling Bridge, hit back with a vengeance. William Wallace's troops were smashed and Wallace had to flee for his life.
