The Battle of Agincourt: 600th Anniversary

THE BATTLE OF AGINCOURT: 600th ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION


25 October 2015 marks the 600th anniversary of the battle of Agincourt, one of the pivotal events in the tumultuous relationship between England and France during the Hundred Years War (1337–1453). To commemorate this event there will be a Royal Armouries’ special exhibition in the White Tower at the Tower of London.

The Battle of Agincourt reveals the moving story of the road to battle, the events of 25 October 1415, and the aftermath; exploring the popular myths, reality and legacy of this extraordinary battle.

This exhibition brings together rare and iconic objects for the first time, including medieval arms and armour, art, music, sculpture and manuscripts from the Royal Armouries’ own collection and leading European institutions.

Explore the story and legacy of this extraordinary battle in our brand new Battle of Agincourt 600th Anniversary Exhibition microsite.
