Our visit to Agincourt is structured to allow students to gain an insight into the nature of medieval warfare and the pivotal role of King Henry V in one of the most decisive battles of the 100 years’ war.
The itinerary includes a full day walking the field in company with an expert Battlefield Guide. Students will not only gain an understanding of the military technology and tactics of the day, they will also consider the composition of the armies of both sides and the feudal loyalties that bound the English and French Armies together.
Our discussions will examine the complex challenges faced by medieval commanders when planning and supporting a high-risk campaign on foreign soil and the experiences of the men at arms that they commanded.
A visit to the Battlefield Visitor Centre presents the opportunity to view and handle the weapons of the day, further consider the social structures of the opposing forces and the importance of religion and medical support to the men who fought.
