Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondswelcome back to the course. This is week two. We'll now be moving on to look at the battle of Agincourt itself. We'll also assess the growing importance of gunpowder weapons in this time and hear something about what it's like to use medieval weapons and the effectiveness of longbows against armour. Thank you for you comments last week and I enjoyed reading them and I look forward to taking part in new conversations with you

Welcome to week 2

In this video, Dan introduces you to the topics you will cover in week two of the course.

This week we will be looking at the events leading up to the battle, and the battle itself. We will conclude the week by considering the aftermath of the battle.

What are you looking forward to learning more about this week?
