Researchers Find William Wallace's House

Wilia Wallace, 13th century “freedom fighter” and his 16 fighting men supposedly used this campsite (or fort) named “Wallace House” to attack the British in small skirmishes. The site is in Dumfries and Galloway council area. Forestry & Land Scotland archaeologist, Matt Ritchie, conducted an aerial survey to give us a glimpse of the site.   Just think, Wallace and his men occupied this site over 700 years ago!

Some think the fort was the staging ground for plans to capture the Scottish castle of Lochmaben in 1297. The castle held a strong defensive position high enough to have a clear view of the lands south of the castle.

      Historian Michael Brown (University of St. Andrews, Scotland) describes Wallace as a “patriotic hero whose only concern was the liberty and protection of his fellow Scots.” Wallace was fed up with England’s treatment of Scotland and he rallied Scotland’s fiercest patriots (Jacobites) to defeat the English at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. However, that was the last victory for one of Scotland’s most famous patriots as he was ultimately caught, imprisoned, and executed for his “crimes against England.”

Because Wallace’s movements were unknown after Stirling, Ritchie’s team took hundreds of pictures and cobbled them together to form the images into the model above.

It would be fantastic if this fort were actually built by Wallace and his men!
