During spring 2001 a decision was made to organize a battle, longbow archery competition and trading event during the summer at Azincourt, The Azincourt Alliance was created to organize this and with the assistance of the newly built museum at Azincourt the initial dates of 20th and 21st July 2002 were agreed on.
The museum and Town Hall gave us a large amount of support assisting with our public liability insurance and arranging for us with a local land owner, a suitable location to use on the edge of the battlefield corresponding to the French right-hand flank.
