Latest Battlefields:

Worcester (1651)

Described by Cromwell as his “crowning mercy”, the Battle of Worcester (1651) saw the total military annihilation of the Royalist cause and marked the end of the Civil War. Despite strong leadership from Charles II, the Parliamentary force proved too strong and ultimately surrounded and stormed the city.

Pwll Melyn (1405)

After suffering a defeat at Grosmont, the army of Owain Glyndŵr attempted to restore their reputation with an assault on the English forces at Usk Castle. They were repulsed and, as they retreated, the garrison sallied out where they routed the Welsh at the Battle of Pwll Melyn (1405).
