Follow the final leg of the British army's march to Prestonpans, examining the route taken and the events which occurred along the way. What did the army look like and where did it go? Does anything in those fateful days provide clues as to why the coming battle would go so wrong for them? Dr Arran Johnston takes us through the events of 17-20 September 1745, on the road from Dunbar to Prestonpans.
