"Search for Culloden's legacy" competition.          


All entries must be received by: Wednesday 19 March.

The objective of the competition is to raise awareness of the importance of the Battle of Culloden and its impact on Scottish, British and World history, to reinforce that it was not a battle between England and Scotland and that in fact some families had members fighting on opposing sides, often against their will. Competition winners will help us to open the exciting new visitor centre at Culloden on Wednesday 16 April 2008.


How to enter

We are keen to trace some young people (under 18 years old) whose ancestors fought at the Battle of Culloden. Entrants should produce a family tree showing their family's involvement in the Battle - either on the Government or Jacobite side - or both. This can be hand written, presented in say a word document or provided as a print out from one of the genealogy website programmes or templates.
