Skip to 0 minutes and 7 secondsWelcome to week three of the Agincourt FutureLearn course. Thanks very much for all the comments and ideas you've made on the course so far. Dan and myself have been very interested in reading your views on what happened six hundred years ago. The final week of the course looks at the legacy of the Battle of Agincourt. Most importantly we look at Shakespeare's view of it because that has influenced so much our perceptions of the battle ever since. We also look at French reactions and how the battle is being treated in newspapers over the centuries that have followed 1415. There's a very interesting link here to between Agincourt and Waterloo.

Skip to 0 minutes and 44 secondsIn the anniversary year there have been many activities organized by Agincourt 600 and other groups. We'll be having a look at those as well and we've invited a number of other historians to join us and we've asked them why the battle still deserves to be commemorated remembered and studied today. We hope you enjoy week three of the course and we look forward to receiving your views in due course.
