"Battle, Bricks and Bridges" lead experts to the truth about the Battle of the Ford of the Biscuits

"Archaeology is an evolving process so you always learn more and more," said archaeologist Paul Logue from the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, about new discoveries on the 16th century Battle of the Ford of the Biscuits in County Fermanagh, Ireland.

It has been long believed that the 1594 battle, in which Queen Elizabeth I sent a relief party to Enniskillen Castle, besieged by Irish chieftain Hugh Maguire, took place near Drumane Bridge. New discoveries sparked by local lore from the group Battle, Bricks and Bridges, including special small bullets used by the cavalry, has placed the battle at a ford in the river.

The confrontation is known as the Battle of the Ford of the Biscuits because when the English troops were massacred, their supplies were thrown into the river.
