The Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum has announced details of almost 30 new sites including Linlithgow Palace and St Michael’s Parish Church in Linlithgow.

All the sites, stretching from Suffolk to Stirling, will display the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum plaque.

Lord Joicey, director of the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum, said: “We’re delighted to have such a diverse and extensive range of new Ecomuseum sites which all help to remember the Battle of Flodden and to educate and inform people about its role in our shared English and Scottish history.

“Our focus is on building and strengthening the community-owned heritage network, where traditions and history are protected and shared with local people and visitors.”

The Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum project lasts for four years and aims to raise the profile of the famous battle on September 9, 1513, and leave a lasting legacy for communities that its heritage continues to touch.
