They joke in France that nobody knows the location of Alesia, the site of the Gauls' final defeat by Caesar, because everybody went into denial about it: 'I don't even know where Alesia is, so there!' Perhaps a similar feeling explains why Flodden, site of...More

A place for reflection and thoughts for the brave souls who perished there. There is a Scots/English mass grave in the local Branxton Church and a very useful guide book to the battle published and sold locally with all proceeds going to the church
