On September 11, 1297, William Wallace and his greatly outnumbered men defeated English forces at the Battle of Stirling Bridge.
This illustration, from Victorian times, imagines how the battle may have appeared when it took place on the old wooden bridge.
The unknown artist, from the 19th-century English School, was likely influenced by the writings of "Blind Harry," the earliest-known biographer of William Wallace. Writing about his subject more than 150 years after Wallace's death, Blind Harry's work - The Wallace - still survives.
