Now I will tell you the full story.
It all started at Stirling Castle .The guards were sleeping and there was a hole bunch of Thistles but they did not know what they were then. The Vikings were not wearing shoes and they started to walk across the Thistles to get to the gate , and because they weren’t wearing shoes the Thistles jagged them with their spikes and because it was so sore they screamed and woke up the guards and then the guards went and started to attack the Vikings.
