In History, 08-23





Today, in 1305, William Wallace, Guardian of Scotland, was condemned to death for treason, the sentence to be carried out the same day. He was dragged through the streets of London to a gallows erected in Elms in Smithfield, where he was hanged, drawn, and quartered. His head was placed on a pole on London Bridge, his right arm above the bridge in Newcastle, his left arm was sent to Berwick, his right foot and limb to Perth and his left quarter to Aberdeen where it was buried in what is now the wall at St. Machars Cathedral.

Have a great day, Loki!

(btw...I have a replica of Wallace's sword. 6' long, 12" at the hilt and weight over 10 lbs.)

That's cool. I'll bet you could nearly split wood with that. I would hate to have to do battle like that. I'm thankful for gunpowder!
