An article in The Telegraph poses the question: 'which anniversary will sway the Scots?', as 2014 marks the Centenary of the First World War, the 700 year anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn and a vote on Scottish independence.

The article analyses attitudes towards, and understandings of, Scotland's role in the First World War and whether the 700 year anniversary of the Scottish victory over England at Bannockburn will compete with the Centenary, particularly within the context of Scotland's independence referenda.
