Not a nice way to go
Sir William Wallace - not a nice way to meet your maker.
Location: London Bridge, SE1
Description: Sir William Wallace (La. Villemus Valensis) (c. 1272/76 August 23, 1305) was a knight and Scottish patriot, who led a resistance against the English occupation of Scotland during the Wars of Scottish Independence.
But poor William meet a grizzly death that beggars belief and suppose accurately portrayed what life was like and how people behaved in the 1300s.
Wallace was hanged, disembowelled, beheaded and quartered at Smithfield before his head was boiled and preserved in tar, and then was first displayed on London Bridge...poor blighter.
