About the memorial: Rough stone monument to a battle which led to a crushing Scottish defeat at the hands of Edward III's English army i alliance with Scottish nobles disinherited by Robert the Bruce in 1333. This seemingly terminated the second Scottish War of Independence. Edward Balliol was installed as as king of Scotland and did homage to Edward III and many of the gains made by Robert the Bruce were reversed. However, over the next four years the followers of the Bruce fought back under King David II. Then England became enmeshed in what became the 100 years War with France. The memorial is in England with the battlefield recognised by Historic England. The pin position is speculative within the site but the National Grid reference for the site is NT8678955540. In the protection section of this entry I have given the Historic England website and number, but the drop-down menu for "category" does not have an option for "Battlefield"
