Battle of Evesham 750th Anniversary Commemoration Events
On the 4th August 1265, forces led by Simon De Montfort fought a battle with forces led by Prince Edward (later King Edward I) just north of Evesham.   In what could be perceived to be a major setback for democracy in England, De Montfort lost, and he was killed. I'm not going to go into too much historical detail here as I'm sure that there are people better able to do so than I can (my German associate Hans Seehase for one, who has written an article on the battle, published in issue 6/15 of "Zillo Medieval" magazine, accompanying photographs supplied by myself). 
 
August 2015 saw several events in Evesham commemorating the battle, and this collection is dedicated to those events.   I had no official standing on any of these events, and my involvement with these events ended with Medieval Festival section on the 9th.   The collection is (for the most part anyway) in chronological order.
