Description

The English Civil War in the North East

A talk series from the Battlefields Trust in association with Tyne and Wear Archives & Museums

Thursday 21 September 2017 - A New Dynasty

In this talk we will look at the coming of the Stuarts in 1603 and consider the origins of the struggle between the monarchy and parliament. We will conclude with a detailed look at the Battle of Newburn Ford (1640) on the western fringes of Newcastle. It was this battle that forced Charles I to abandon his long period of direct rule without Parliament.

Thursday 28 September 2017 - Nation at War With Itself

In this talk we will cover the descent into civil war. The north east was peripheral to the early phase of the Civil War. We will look at this period in summary and consider the events leading to the invasion of the Scots on the side of Parliament in 1644 and the fighting that began in Northumberland.

Thursday 5 October 2017 - Newcastle At Bay

This talk will move into the second half of 1644 culminating in the Siege of Newcastle. This will include a look at the lesser known Siege of South Shields and the fighting between Newcastle and Sunderland. We will conclude with details of the aftermath of these actions and briefly summarise the events leading to the execution of Charles I and the abolition of the monarchy.

Part of a series of three talks on the English Civil War and the involvement of the north east in the struggle between King and Parliament.
