Cambuskenneth Abbey part of Bannockburn archaeological study

The 700th anniversary of the Scottish victory at Bannockburn has brought together archaeologists and experts from a number of fields to study the battle. Among the sites investigated is Cambuskenneth Abbey near Stirling where Robert the Bruce held several of his early parliaments.

The project encouraged volunteers, including schoolchildren, to participate alongside metal detectorists, historians and geophysicists. A number of artifacts were discovered during a metal detector survey such as buttons, coins and cannonballs.
