William Scott - History Books

Bannockburn Revealed (BR), contains all the sources, translated, plus the first justified map of the battle area in 1314, that took up 100 pages and has about 70 photos and maps of the battle area. Where and how the battle was fought are established there for the first time. This book is ground breaking. For the first time, a procedure on p254 is used which is dazzling: take every relevant source and count the number of statements for any issue, pro and con. Then tabulate the results. When 6 sources, some of them, within days of the battle, all say repeatedly that the Scots all fought on foot, you know instantly that they did. And that John Barbour who wrote 1375-8, over sixty years later, said there was a Scottish cavalry charge, you know who is right. The Scots all fought on foot.

Bannockburn Proved

"You should get a doctorate from every university in Scotland for this."
~ Irvine Smith, Advocate, Sheriff and Historian.

"William Scott brings to this sequel to his previous book, 'Bannockburn Revealed', ... his further reasoned consideration of the subject, attacked with the thoroughness and cold logic one would associate with a consummate mathematician.

As a classical scholar and student of Ancient History I particularly appreciate his evaluation of evidence, sifting the dross from the gold.

He has challenged the historical establishment and in so doing has ruffled many a feather. I would put him on par with the young Michael Ventris whose work on the decipherment of Linear B confounded the Classical establishment of his time.

Hopefully, William Scott will in the end gain the same acceptance."
~ ITom McCallum, M.A..Hons (Classics) St Andrews.

The Genius of Bannockburn

"The book is certainly a tour de force, and by far the most intelligent and comprehensive account of the battle ever written."
~ Roger Graham, Editor

"William Scott has indisputably solved what happened at Bannockburn and, more importantly how. His proofs are exhaustive, detailed and correct. No one else has come close. This is the definitive work on the subject. Historians who refuse to recognise his work remind me of the Flat Earth Society. Proofs are proofs, pure and simple."
~ Rev J. Stein, Minister, Theologian Publisher

"A masterpiece of research, two decades of meticulous scientific investigation of each inch of the battle area, all the maps and all the written sources."
~ Donald Morrison, Teacher and expert on the battle

"Superbly researched, revealing previously unknown information. Every aspect of the battle is explained with compelling conviction, bringing new light to a glorious moment in Scottish history."
~ David Torrie, Editor

"On a par with the decipherment of Linear B by Michael Ventris which confounded the establishment of his time. In his 3rd book on this, Mr Scott has refined and amplified his arguments, put up a conclusive case and thoroughly exposed the shortcomings of the academic history community."
~ Tom MaCallum, Classicist

"In my opinion, this research settles the site of the battle."
~ Irvine Smith QC, Advocate, Sheriff, Historian.
