On Wednesday Jane Miller, Education Officer for the project, welcomed Berwick Probus Club to Berwick Museum gave an interesting talk on its aims and then showed members around the excellent museum set up there.

A series of excavations have taken place and more will follow as those driving the scheme try to find out as much as possible about the last great battle on British soil, which ended with the Scottish King James IV killed and huge losses on both sides. The Earl of Surrey, then 70, led the English army and survived.

Jane said a lot of sites were included in the project, on both sides of the border, and students from England and Scotland are playing an important role. Work also includes a study of the way in which the 500th anniversary was commemorated.
