James IV and the Battle of Flodden

Tom Snaith

Date: Tuesday 12th September
Venue: Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life (in Carlisle Castle)

Tom is retired teacher, local historian and secretary of the Carlisle History Group. Tom is fascinated by Border history, and he finds no topic more intriguing than the story of James IV.

James was well on the way to becoming the greatest Stewart monarch when he invaded England in 1513. Appearing to have every advantage victory seemed assured yet his campaign collapsed resulting in a massacre for his soldiers. This talk will endeavour to shed light on what went wrong for this charismatic Scottish monarch.
