This is the first publication to cover the great conflicts, that have taken place on Yorkshire soil, from the Battle of Brunnanburgh in 937AD to the Battle of Towton in 1461. The reader is given an appreciation of why battles took place, the nature of the opponents and the lie of the land. The reader is then taken back to the site today and guided around the battlefield, where they can appreciate some of the decisive moments of each battle. Helpful information is provided to readers, such as where to walk and where to view, as well as public transport and opening times (where appropriate). This book features the sites of Brunnanburgh (1319), Boroughbridge (1322), Byland (1322), Wakefield (1460) and Towton (1461). This is a book ideal for those who want to discover more about Yorkshire's past.
