Battle of Bannockburn Family History Project

To mark the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn in 2014, The University of Strathclyde ran a Bannockburn Project, to throw light on the participants in the Battle from a genealogical point of view. The project examined the combatants and their families, which featured biographical information and coats of arms of 70 of the combatants as well as genealogies of their families over four generations. 

The project also incorporated the use of genetic genealogy in the research, to help reveal living descendants of combatants in the Battle. Click on the coat of arms below to learn more about the combatants and their families.
