About the site
Intermediate History: Wallace and Bruce
This site has been written for students of Intermediate 2 History and covers the main events outlined in Scottish and British History: context 2 – Wallace, Bruce and the Wars of Independence 1286 – 1328.
Students are asked to assume the role of a medieval Scots noble and decide what action to take at key points in the story. Should they fight beside Wallace at Stirling Bridge? Should they switch sides and support Edward when it all starts to go wrong? By presenting these dilemmas and asking for a considered response, we hope to deepen students’ understanding of the issues and social standards of the day and go some way to explaining the behaviour and decisions of the main players.
Information is provided in a rich multimedia format for those with broadband access, and in a lighter bandwidth version for those accessing the site via a modem.
Although some of the video elements may take a short while to download, they will then be cached on your computer or server and should load more quickly on future occasions.
The synopsis provides an overview of the structure of the site and the key dates and events covered. It also allows you to navigate directly to different sections of the site.
