Robert the Bruce Tomb Reconstruction at Abbotsford

A  Research Grant from the Society supported a collaborative project to reconstruct the lost tomb of Robert the Bruce. Buried in Dunfermline Abbey in 1329, Bruce’s tomb was probably destroyed during the Reformation and fragments of the tomb dispersed.  An exhibition of the 3-D model and artefacts, including a fragment collected by Sir Walter Scott, will be on display at Abbotsford from the 11th April.
