Saw the outline for the replacement Bannockburn Heritage Centre at SLF13 and it looks spectacular. I was looking out for it, so the initial attraction to the stand wasn’t just the good looking knight in full armour.
From a 3D tour through the building to interactive exhibits, there seems plenty to keep minds occupied. For class visits there’s the chance to fight the battle with thirty participants each taking on a unit from both sides. Manoeuvring around the battlefield with no guarantee of winning will be a powerful learning tool, and not just for history classes.
Oh, yes, and I also received a hug from the knight which not only made my day, but will possibly be the abiding memory of this year’s event 😎
