William Wallace's victory set to win iconic status

The ground where William Wallace won his most famous victory over the English is set to feature in Scotland's "Inventory of Historic Battlefields". Historic Scotland revealed in December the first 17 nationally important sites for inclusion, including Bannockburn and Culloden.
