A previously unknown letter written by Robert the Bruce to King Edward II has been uncovered.

The letter, sent in 1310, asks English King Edward II to stop persecuting the Scots.

It shows Robert asserting his God-given authority as king of the Scots and addressing Edward as his equal.

The script, thought to have been transcribed from the original, was discovered by chance by a professor of Scottish history at Glasgow University.
