English Civil War sites of conflict 1642 - 1660

Work-in-progress. I'm particularly interested hearing about any skirmishes/acts of violence/destruction often overlooked, little known or recently discovered.

  1. One for your sites of conflict map: The Siege of Newcastle, 19 October 1644. Strangely missed by many historians of the English Civil War period! Watch out for more details bringing the Siege and Storm of Newcastle to life through the Old Newcastle Project at www.oldnewcastle.org.uk
