The battlefields of England and Scotland are a strongly neglected but important part of our national heritage, and what remains today and the current usage of the sites is very varied. Some, like Bosworth and Culloden, have modern visitor centres, shops and cafés, and others such as Homildon Hill and Edgecote have nothing at all.


From King Alfred’s victory over the Danes at Ashdown in AD 871 to the defeat of the Jacobites in the April snow at Culloden in 1746, this book covers seventy battles that took place in England and Scotland. The author gives each battle its historical context, describes the action in relation to the landscape and discusses the remains of the site and what can be found today.
