Episode 1: Anne Curry on Agincourt

Professor Anne Curry

Welcome to the first episode of Southampton History Speaks! In this episode, Dean of Humanities and Professor of History Anne Curry talks to Rachel Herrmann and Eve Colpus about her work on Agincourt in 1415.

You’ll learn about how previous historical interpretations of the Battle of Agincourt differ from Anne Curry’s (hint: there are archers involved!), hear about plans for this year’s commemoration events, and listen to Anne Curry describe how one historical project has led to her next one.
