Battle of Agincourt exhibition at the Tower of London

Date Posted: 19/05/2015

An exhibition marking the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt will be on display at the Tower of London from 23rd October to 31st January.

This autumn/winter, the Royal Armouries will commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt with an exhibition in the White Tower at the Tower of London.

25th October marks the 600th anniversary of the battle, which was one of the pivotal events in the tumultuous relationship between England and France during the Hundred Years War.

The royal arsenal at the Tower of London helped to supply the armies and it was in the White Tower where Charles, Duke of Orleans, was imprisoned after his capture at the battle.

Agincourt brings together Medieval armour, art, music, sculpture and manuscripts from the Royal Armouries’ own collections and those of other institutions in England and France.

At the centre of the exhibition, which is particularly suitable for Key Stage 3 History pupils studying the Middle Ages, will be a detailed scale model of the battlefield.
