Dunfermline Abbey and Palace

The complex was founded in the 11th century by Queen Margaret, the English wife of the Scottish king Malcolm III. Some Norman work can be seen in the present church, where Robert the Bruce (12744–1329) lies buried. The palace grew from the abbey guesthouse and was the birthplace of Charles I (1600–49). Dunfermline was the seat of the royal court of Scotland until the end of the 11th century, and its central role in Scottish affairs is explored by means of display panels dotted around the drafty but hallowed buildings.
