The Battle of Agincourt was one of the greatest English victories in the Hundred Years’ War, and it was something to celebrate, unless you were a member of the French cavalry.

Now an engaging historian is to give a talk about the battle at Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall.

A spokesman said: “ Join Max Keen for another of his lively and animated talks where he poses the question: was Agincourt England’s finest three hours?

“Complete with armour, chain mail and weapons of the period, Max presents a recreation of the horror that was Agincourt and the hero that was King Henry V.”

The battle famously took place on October 25, 1415 (Saint Crispin’s Day) near Azincourt in northern France. Aided by ranks of longbow men, England’s unexpected victory against a numerically superior French army boosted English morale and prestige, crippled France, and started a new period of English dominance in the war.

The date for the diary is not St Crispin’s Day but October 15, at 7.30pm.
