The role and significance of dozens of the most significant battlefields and sieges in the story of the fight for Magna Carta are to be highlighted by the Battlefields Trust and the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary Commemoration Committee thanks to a grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The project will raise awareness of the battlefields and sieges associated with Magna Carta and the resulting Barons Wars. It will develop interpretation and educational resources to tell this story, including the development of an exciting battlefields trail that integrates with a nationwide Magna Carta trail. Look out for #MagnaCartaBattles for up-to-date information about this exciting project.
