This is a Zoom talk and will take place at 6pm on Friday 28th January 2022.

The Battle of Otterburn (1388) was fought on a moonlight night between a Scottish force under Sir James Douglas and an English army under Sir Henry ‘Hotspur’ Percy. The latter had lost a pennon to the former and resolved to get it back. The battle was a Scottish victory but Douglas was killed and Percy forged his reputation in the best traditions of the age.
