Archaeologists to wrap up dig at Flodden

9 September, 2013 marked the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden between the Scots and the British in the fields of Northumberland, England. In October 2014, excavations of the site will be terminated, ending several years of work. The latest dig will concentrate on the bridge at Ellemford, believed to be the muster site for the Scottish army.

"We have really no idea of what to expect on this site," said archaeologist Chris Burgess, who oversees excavations. "It is supposedly the site where the Scots army mustered before invading England in 1513. But it has been used as a fairground before then and ever since."
