2nd Battle of St Albans re-enactment

Published: at 12:00 AM

Living in the British countryside it’s easy to find little fairs and celebrations about all sorts of things. Last week the Medieval Siege Society remembered the 2nd Battle of St Albans, so it was the perfect opportunity to take my camera out and photograph something different than my daughter.

The battle took place on Bernards Heath in 1461, as part of the Wars of the Roses. More info about it on the wikipedia.

It's a hard life

Apparently the First Battle of St Albans (1455) marks the beginning of the Wars of the Roses. So if I they ask me that type of questions when I request the nationality, hopefully I’ll get this one right!
