Shot-fall map of the battle of Naseby

#1
Does anyone know where I can find a shot-fall map of every phase of the battle of Naseby? There are sections of it on the Naseby site, but not all. It's an interesting project, and I would like to walk the ground again with this map if possible.

You can start by sending me a PM and I will put you in touch with the people who know.

Be aware that any "phases of the Battle of Naseby" are interpretation, based on the artefacts found. Its an explanation not a truth.

What is your interest?

An interest in visiting battlefields of the past ?? Much safer than visiting ones of the present :)

Is this information so valuable that one needs to pass some special test to look at it ? If it's metal detectorists or archaeologists (treasure hunters) you are worried about, might have a word with Karl Ude-Martinez who did a "Weapons of Destruction" episode on Naseby and showed the map of the shotfall in his quite good programme.

Martin Marix Evens sent the following in response:

The easiest place to look is on page 152 of the Pen & Sword book, Naseby, by
Marix Evans, Burton and Westaway, ISBN 0 85052 871 2. Note that the
viewpoints in this book precede the creation of teh Battlefield Trail, and
thus care has to be taken relating them to the Trail leaflet and map on the
www.naseby.com site.

There is also a map on the Battlefields Trust website, but of a slightly
older vintage and thus incomplete. The published maps are, as a matter of
fact, all incomplete and I believe Peter Burton is arranging an update to
bring in recent information.
