Thread Name: Q about No Mans Land
Subject: RE: Q about No Mans Land
I was thinking about asking a question about the Flowers of the Forest myself....and here is a thread about it....I seem to remember reading in a biography about Wallace and in that book it mentioned an occurance at one of the battles of Stirling that was similar to the later flowers of the forest and it intimated (at least to me) that they were a group of soldiers surrounding their lord, protecting him and dying....Does anyone here have any information regarding this?

And on a side note in that same book it made several references to a character called Blind Harry....the name sounds vaguely familiar to me, but I have no idea where from....anyone know about him?
