Tony Pollard and Neil Oliver visit the site of the Battle of Culloden. They carry out a full archaeological investigation of the site. The Battle of Culloden illuminates a dynastic rivalry of gigantic proportions. In 1745, Bonnie Prince Charlie stepped into the spotlight. He sailed out of exile, landed on Scottish soil, and, along with his Jacobite supporters, attempted to restore his father and the Stewart line to the British throne, which they'd been kicked off 57 years before. His cousin, William Duke of Cumberland, the youngest son of King George the Second, led a huge government army against him. On April 16th 1746, they met just outside Inverness on Culloden Moor, in the Battle of Culloden, the aftermath of which would reverberate down through centuries.
