A 3D reconstruction of the tomb of Robert the Bruce is to go on display at Dunfermline Abbey.

All 19 known surviving fragments of the tomb were recorded using 3D laser scanning, allowing them to be printed and used for academic stufy and reconstruction.

The half-scale model was presented at Abbey Church on Friday, and concludes six years of recreation works.

Dr Iain Fraser, archives manager at HES, said "I am delighted to see the model of the Lost Tomb of Robert the Bruce installed here in Dunfermline Abbey Parish Church.

"This fulfils a project that started six years ago – among the first of its kind in Scotland to use cutting edge 3D scanning.

"The project would have been impossible without the active and willing contribution of a wide range of partners and as a result, the public can now see what Robert the Bruce’s tomb would have looked like, alongside his final resting place."

Robert the Bruce's skeletal remains were reinterred beneath Dunfermline Abbey Church after they were found and excavated over 50 miles away in 1818.
