Bannockburn discovery
17 May 2012
Archaeologists looking for the spot where Robert the Bruce's army camped before the Battle of Bannockburn have stumbled on a much older site, used by hunters 5000 years ago.
Exploratory digs in the car park at the Bannockburn Heritage Centre have revealed a small campfire used by Stone Age people. These may have been a family group on the move or a party of hunters.
In the remains of the fire were found burnt pieces of oak, birch and hazel, gathered from the surrounding area which would have consisted of open woodland. Carbon dating of the fragments showed that they are from a period between 2900BC and 2600BC.
