TNA podcast - William Wallace and Edward 1

The latest podcast from the National Archives at Kew is William Wallace’s rising and execution, and Edward I’s conquest of Scotland, a talk from John Reuben Davies and Dauvit Broun at just under half an hour. here's the blurb:

The period of crisis in Scotland following the death of Alexander III, and leading to the eventual conquest by Edward I, still excites controversy and discussion, not least about the role of William Wallace. During work on an AHRC-funded project the ‘Breaking of Britain’, important discoveries were made using documents in The National Archives and in a private collection in Norway.
