The 9th September 2013 marks the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden. The battle was a Scottish tragedy involving the death of 10,000 common soldiers, nearly 100 noblemen and the Scottish King, James IV.
Yet apart from the north of Northumberland these catastrophic events are largely unknown in England despite their influence in shaping British and European politics for the next 100 years, culminating with the union of the English and Scottish crowns in 1603.
As part of the programme of projects and events commemorating the battle, communities on both sides of the border have come together to establish Britain’s first cross-border ecomuseum. Here you will find details of the Flodden 1513 ecomuseum sites, community projects and events that are contributing to the commemoration and the ongoing remembrance of the Battle of Flodden
