The society does not exist as a reenactment society nor does it exist as a solely academic one. It believes that both are an integral part of protecting, preserving and promoting the heritage of this hugely significant battle.
On this site you will find details of our events, campaigns and proposals as well as information on how to join the society. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook and you can find out more about joining the society by going to the ‘Join Us’ page, listed above.
