In 2014 we are due to mark the 700th anniversary of the battle of Bannockburn in time for the independence referendum.
2013 is the 500th anniversary of the battle of Flodden, but we do not appear to be marking that anniversary with the same gusto. Why?
I know, we lost that one. In Edinburgh the battle of Flodden is remembered in the fragments of the Flodden wall encircling the Old Town.
