European Medieval Battlefields

Supported by CARMEN – the Worldwide Medieval NetworkEuropean Medieval Battlefields is an exciting new, curated series. Each of the monographs will present an overview of a key European battle in the medieval era. As well as describing the strategy and outcome of the battle itself, the authors will place the conflict within the wider history of the European continent. They go on to discuss the relevance of the battle and the battlesite in contemporary memory and myth-making, and conclude by examining how this heritage is preserved and conveyed to new generations.
