On the day of the 600th anniversary of the battle of Agincourt, the most famous victory of the Middle Ages, Monmouth Museum presents medieval historian and best selling author Juliet Barker who will discuss how and why it happened, reveal the personal stories of some of those involved and demonstrate how, above all else, this momentous battle was a personal victory for one man: Monmouth’s most famous son – Henry V.
Juliet Barker is an internationally recognised authority on medieval history whose ability to combine ground-breaking scholarly research with a highly readable and accessible style has made her one of Britain’s most popular historians. A new and expanded edition of her best-selling Agincourt: The King, The Campaign, The Battle is published this year to mark the 600th anniversary of the battle. Copies of the book will be available on the day.
