Sir William Wallace, after his capture at Robroyston on 3rd August 1305, was taken to Dumbarton Castle and held overnight. The next morning he was taken across the River Clyde to an area now known as Port Glasgow where according to local legend, he was chained to an oak tree by his captors before being handed over to English Troops for his transfer to London and his judicial murder. This oak tree survived until 1995 when, in what is now the grounds of the Holy Family Church, it eventually fell during a winter storm.

The Society of William Wallace supported by leading dendrochronologist Dr Coralie Mills, verifies that the piece of wood in this package, is from the legendary Wallace Oak Port Glasgow.

Price is £10 plus £2.90 p&p (UK only). Dispatched with Royal Mail 2nd Class.
