Event description

Description

Join us to celebrate the launch of the publication of The Fighting Essex Soldier, a collection of papers drawn from those given at an Essex Record Office conference in March 2014.

The wars of the fourteenth-century English kings with France and Scotland resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of men involved in warfare on land and sea. This book draws upon new research to identify and analyse these soldiers at all social levels in the specific context of the county of Essex.

The afternoon will include tea, coffee and cake, and a chance to purchase the book at the discounted price of £15 (RRP £18.99). The book will be set into context with a talk by Dr Adam Chapman on Soldiers of the English Realm: Essex and beyond c.1300-c.1450.

More about the book and Dr Adam Chapman’s talk

Please arrive from 2.00pm for refreshments; the talk will begin at 2.30pm.

In association with the University of Hertfordshire Press, the Friends of Historic Essex and the Essex Journal
