Publication Date: 1 April 2008 | Series: Battlefield Walks
Northumberland is one of the most beautiful counties in
England, but also one of the most fought over. It has seen countless
skirmishes, some very bloody, between invading and looting Scots and the
avenging English families of the Percies, Umfravilles and Nevilles.
Rupert Matthews, ‘the History Man’, presents fifteen guided walks
around the battlefields of Northumberland. He provides an account of
events as they unfolded on the ground along with full background and
context. His expertise, descriptive powers and lively enthusiasm bring
the drama of history vividly to life.
