Abstract

This is the first of two related sessions looking at aspects of Anglo-Scottish warfare c. 1296-c. 1513, with this session focussing on the beginning of that period. The papers will cover the themes of military command, military organisation, and soldiering during the period c. 1296-c. 1357. The first paper will consider the subject of military command through a re-assessment of the martial career of John, Earl Warenne, who led his army to defeat at the battle of Stirling Bridge (1297). The second paper will discuss the role played by the kings’ sergeants-at-arms during the Anglo-Scottish wars of the reigns of Edward I and Edward II. The third paper will examine the English occupation of southern Scotland during the Second Scottish Wars of Independence.
