The 9th September 2013 marks the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden. The battle was a national tragedy that led to the death of 15,000 Scots and English soldiers, 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.
Here you will find details of the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum sites, community projects and events that are contributing to the commemoration and ongoing remembrance of the Battle of Flodden. The Ecomuseum sites, and the information found on this website, piece together the wider story of the Battle of Flodden both past and present. The full story of the actual engagement can be found on the Remembering Flodden website or by following the battlefield trail at Branxton. Call in at the old red telephone box in the village, which has been converted into one of the smallest visitor centres in the world!
