Bannockburn House - inaugural dig 2018

Looking for Jacobites!

Help us find Bonnie Prince Charlie's Lost Camp! 

In January 1746, while plotting the last siege of Stirling Castle, Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Young Pretender to the British crown, our King over the water, stayed at Bannockburn House, and we think some of his troops camped in the grounds... but we don't know where.

By supporting the search (metal detecting/test pitting) you'll help us:

  • Run the exploration. We need archaeologists on site providing expert support to searchers.
  • Fund 'aftercare'. We need specialists to analyse, conserve and take care of the artefacts we find.
  • Provide support for local people to participate. The house was bought as a community asset and is of international significance.
  • Share our data, discoveries and interpretation. We think that the results of publicly funded research should be fee and easy to access; we'll put all of ours online as soon as they're made.
In return you could get a place on the exploration, a commemorative t-shirt, your name in the first ever archaeological report of the site, or the whole enchilada; a little thank you for your help.

Limited to 15 metal detecting places per day (you can choose to donate more than once to participate on 2 or more days).

Oh, and did we mention we're also throwing a garden party that weekend with family activities, entertainment, and food and drink?
