Description

In the wet autumn of 1415 a ragged, dysentery ravaged English army, led by their 28 year old king, stared across a soggy field near Agincourt. Facing them was a French Army several thousand men stronger and led by the flower of Europe’s knightly class.

Despite numerical superiority and home turf advantage, within just a few hours some 6,000 Frenchmen lay dead or dying in the mud and blood of Agincourt; felled by bodkin tipped arrows, cut down by sword, mace and axe, or skewered by an archer’s bollock dagger.

The Battle of Agincourt was a dark day for France but a foundation moment in the annals of English nationhood. Immortalised in William Shakespeare’s Henry V, and countless adaptions since, this tour will unmask the battle as a brutal brawl, far removed from the speeches and pageantry of film and theatre.

Fabulous as always, having visited the battlefield a few years ago this tour brought alive the terrain we’d seen in a way i’ve not experienced before – thank you!
