TNA's Wallace letter to be studied

On April 9th I posted a note directing people to a letter about William Wallace that had been placed online by the English based National Archives, via their Documents Online site - see http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/2010/04/letter-concerning-william-wallace.html

The National Archives of Scotland has now announced that experts from Scotland, England and France are to investigate the 700 year old letter. A meeting will be held in August at TNA, and a seminar of top boffins will be held in spring 2011 to discuss findings. An exhibition will follow in 2012.
