Stirling Castle knight revealed as English nobleman

Breaking News

A skeleton discovered at Stirling Castle may have been an English knight who died in the 14th Century.

Sir John de Stricheley died in 1341, when the English held the castle.

An investigation into the skeleton by forensic anthropologist Professor Sue Black and her team from the University of Dundee was featured on BBC Two's History Cold Case series on Thursday.

The battle-scared knight probably died from an arrow wound inflicted by the Scots.
