This was project was managed by David Marshal of TM Terrain ... http://tmterrain.co.uk/

Figures used were 28mm from Perry Miniatures.

I hope to see this some day.  Enjoy!  :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

And you might want to listen to music written for the historical occasion:

To add the text:

Owre Kynge went forth to Normandy
With grace and myght of chyvalry
Ther God for hym wrought mervelusly;
Wherefore Englonde may call and cry}}

Deo gratias!
Deo gratias Anglia redde pro victoria!

He sette sege, forsothe to say,
To Harflu towne with ryal aray;
That toune he wan and made afray
That Fraunce shal rewe tyl domesday.


Then went hym forth, owre king comely,
In Agincourt feld he faught manly;
Throw grace of God most marvelously,
He had both feld and victory.

Ther lordys, erles and barone
Were slayne and taken and that full soon,
Ans summe were broght into Lundone
With joye and blisse and gret renone.

Almighty God he keep owre kynge,
His people, and alle his well-wyllynge,
And give them grace wythoute endyng;
Then may we call and savely syng:

Deo gratias!
Deo gratias Anglia redde pro victoria!

Modern English:

Our king went forth to Normandy,
With grace and might of chivalry;
The God for him wrought marvelously,
Wherefore England may call, and cry
Deo gracias: Deo gracias Anglia redde pro victoria.

He set a siege, the sooth for to say,
To Harfleur town with royal array;
That town he won, and made a fray,
That France shall rue till Domesday.
Deo gracias…

Then went our king, with all his host,
Through France for all the French boast;
He spared no dread of least, nor most,
Till he came to Agincourt coast.
Deo gracias…

Then for sooth that knight comely
In Agincourt field he fought manly
Through grace of God most mighty
He had both the field, and the victory
Deo gracias…

Their dukes, and earls, lord and baron,
Were taken, and slain, and that well soon,
And some were led in to London
With joy, and mirth, and great renown
Deo gracias…

Now gracious God he save our king,
His people, and all his well willing,
Give him good life, and good ending,
That we with mirth may safely sing
Deo gracias…

When I first saw that diorama, it did not compute with an account of the battle that I read when I was a youngster.  However, in seeing it, I suspected that since it was a current expression of what happened, there must have been some updated info that was used to create this diorama.

And then I found this today ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1dFzFwgrfE

Clearly there has been some research on all of this, and I am looking forward to doing some more learning.

Was tempted to put the following video in the Archaeology thread, except with it being about Agincourt and is an extension of my exploration following the video link above, decided to put this in here as well ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgL55BoMh_E

This was interesting because it has some conversations with Anne Curry, and covers the work done by Tim Sutherland, the latter also responsible for some archaeology done at Towton.

I'll keep an eye out for more.

This takes me back to when I did my master's degree. I actually enjoyed Canterbury Tales, reading it in its original language. Thanks for posting.

You're our spandex heroes, now fullfil your destinies
And so we turned and rode beyond the castle walls

I live in Leeds and am lucky enough to have seen that diorama several times. It really is a sight to behold and worth a trip. I think the Perrys did an exhibition at The Armouries a few years back too.

I'd enjoy seeing that diorama, and would also enjoy seeing the battlefield area as well someday.
