Lecture: The Second Battle of St Albans

at Zoom

Speaker: Dr Peter Burley

The lecture sits within a larger programme of events including the Barnet Medieval Festival, St Albans Museum + Gallery, and the Battlefields Trust. Learn about the first use of handguns in Britain, why Warwick the Kingmaker failed so badly and meet one of England’s first – and least likely – war correspondents. Hear
about new information and perspectives on the battle that are still emerging.

Peter Burley, our Vice-President, lives on the battlefield of the Second Battle of St Albans (1461, Wars of the Roses). He has researched the battle working with colleagues in the Battlefields Trust. His lecture will support the exhibition on the battle being held in the museum from March to June. The lecture will be more of a narrative account of the battle, but members are urged to visit the exhibition before the lecture.

Attendance is free to members; £5 for non-members. This talk is on Zoom only. To register, please visit our Eventbrite page.
