Dunbar 1650: re-interpreting the battlefield

On the rain-soaked battlefield of Dunbar two former allies fought a bitter clash of arms. For Cromwell it cemented his reputation and paved the way for political and military supremacy. For the Scots it meant defeat, occupation and the end of a cause. Poor judgment alongside a brilliant victory, the Battle of Dunbar had both.

Arran Johnston, Director of The Scottish Battlefield Trust, brings the story of the Dunbar campaign vividly to life and outlines the work that the Trust is doing to interpret and preserve this, and many other battlefields, for visitors today.
