Fellas Let's Go! The Battle of Agincourt 1415

Saturday 12th September, 2015

10:00am - 4:30pm

Price: £30.00

Ages: Adults

Lecturer: Tobias Capwell & others 

2015 brings the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt, a pivotal event which has historically been the subject of a great deal of misunderstanding and misconception. It has become entwined with modern notions of national identity and Anglo-French rivalry, and in the popular imagination is often conceived of as a fight solely between low-born English archers and aristocratic French knights. The reality is more complex, and much more interesting. This study day brings together curators, historians and artists working on different aspects of the battle to explore their different perspectives on this singular moment in history.
