Description: Formalised architectural and landscape re-definition of the battle-site of Bannockburn 1314 made for the 650th anniversary in 1964.  The form of the Rotunda was doubtless intended to echo Neolithic henge monuments and almost certainly draws inspiration from Gunnar Asplund’s Woodland Cemetery in Stockholm (1930-50’s).
