The 1217 Battle of Lincoln

19 May 2017

Join Nigel Burn and Malcolm Stainforth of the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology for an historical Lunchtime Lecture

The 2nd Battle of Lincoln of 1217 celebrates its 800th anniversary on 20th May 2017. This talk will explore the immense significance of the battle for the history of England, and how it fits into the wider story of civil war, the creation of Magna Carta, and a nation facing the very real possibility of becoming ruled by France. The Battle of Lincoln was a pivotal and dramatic point in the tale, and this lecture will explore its history, myth and legacy.

Nigel Burn and Malcolm Stainforth are members of the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology

This talk is part of our ongoing Lunchtime Lectures series. It will be held in the auditorium at The Collection, starting at 12.30 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes.
