In a nutshell, the Battle of Bannockburn, for which Niall was supposed to raise men, was one of Scotland’s greatest moments– perhaps the greatest.  It was the battle, in 1314, in which Robert the Bruce, with approximately 5,000 men, including a small contingent of light cavalry (read: ponies) completey routed the massive army, perhaps as many as 20,000, including 2,000 heavy warhorses, of Edward II of England.

As I continue this blog, I will be adding posts on writing, authors of work set in the medieval era, and information I collect while researching.  I will be adding links to some of that research, which can be found on the bottom left of this home page. 

Please feel free to share links with me on any aspect of writing or medieval times.
