In 1818 workmen at Dunfermline Abbey unearthed a stone coffin which contained the skeleton of King Robert The Bruce. Within the tomb there were found other small artefacts related to the King including an inscribed copper name plate that was thought to have been originally attached to the front of the coffin. It reads simply “Robertus Scotorum Rex” (Robert King of Scots)
After the tomb and the Kings remains were inspected and re-interred in a crypt under the pulpit, the copper plate and a few bone fragments were given to the Museum of Antiquities in Edinburgh (Now the National Museum of Scotland). A new inscription plate was added to the coffin which reads “King Robert Bruce 1329 1819”
This piece is a replica of the original copper nameplate. The inscription and lettering is an exact copy of the original taken from a facsimilie of the original coffin plate
