                Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

 

                Content: From 1295 to 1306 the political situation in Scotland was chaotic. Edward I wished to rule directly and, after defeating the forces of Sir William Wallace at Falkirk in 1298, gradually brought the Scottish nobility to heel. One noble, however, Robert Bruce, Earl of Carrick, entertained private ambitions. His support for Wallace had been an off and on thing, but he had regained Edward’s confidence.
