Online Conference 1st May - The Medieval Battlefield


Just sharing the great news of the Battlefields Trust's reconfigured Annual Conference: now online at a fraction of the original, residential, cost - and one day, 10 til 4:30 (£25, any procees from which will go directly towards protecting Britain's endangered battlefields).

Regulars here will be delighted to hear that the high profile speaker list includes several Society of Ancients luminaries ... Thom (Royal Armouries) Richardson, Graham (wargaming4grownups) Evans and Matthew (Sandhurst) Bennett, these days, of course, one of the Society's Life Vice Presidents.

The Conference will be chaired by Professor Anne Curry, and is being organised by me.

  • Thom Richardson: mail and plate armour
  • Graham Evans: Edgcote - the Source of the Problems


  • panel discussion on battlefield numbers (Anne Curry; Matt Bennett; Sophie Ambler; Graham Evans)
  • Dan Spencer: Gunpowder Weapons in the Wars of the Roses
  • Mike Ingram: Northampton 1460 
It is going to be a fascinating day, and I am sure some new stuff is going to emerge.
