How Waller Lost the Battle of Roundway Down
Dr Chris Scott
A lecture and sandwich lunch

The Fusiliers Museum London in the
Officer's Mess of The Royal
Regiment of Fusiliers
HM Tower of London
On 13th July 1643 Sir William Waller had a combined arms force of some 5,000 reasonably experienced men. How was he beaten by Henry Lord Wilmot's cavalry army of less than 2,000!
Working from primary sources and period zeitgeist Chris Scott challenges the conventional location of the battle. Whilst the generally acknowledged understanding of the action is accepted, he will put forward at least two further and probably more telling reasons for consideration and debate.
Dr Chris Scott is an acknowledged expert on the English Civil War, with a string of publications on the subject and practical experience as a re-enactor. He has been a long term supporter and former Trustee of the Battlefields Trust. He is a great exponent of battlefield interpretation and presentation providing the academic framework for the Guild of Battlefield Guides validation programme. .
Our hosts will be the Fusiliers Museum and the event includes a sandwich lunch, a glass of wine and the opportunity to network in the exclusive surroundings of the Fusiliers mess in HM Tower of London.
