Evesham Map 1265

The Battle of Evesham (4 August 1265) was one of the two main battles of 13th century England's Second Barons' War. It marked the defeat of Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester, and the rebellious barons by the future King Edward I, who led the forces of his father, King Henry III.

This is an early stitched map that I stitched to get to know my new home town. With a mixture of historical research and a lot of imagination I tried to capture that infamous day.
