The Field of Bannockburn and the Bore Stone, etching by Andrew Geddes (1826)

From: Etchings by Sir David Wilkie, Limner to H.M. for Scotland, and by Andrew Geddes: With Biographical Sketches by David Laing (Edinburgh: Printed by R. & R. Clark, 1875)

Geddes's etching may claim to be the earliest representation by a Scottish artist of the presumed site of the Battle of Bannockburn (1314) and of the Bore Stone in which Robert the Bruce is said to have raised the Royal Standard against the English.
