Expansion of Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum

1 May 2012

The Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum is looking to expand by a further 25 sites and is seeking nominations from across the UK for sites which relate to the Battle of Flodden, either directly or indirectly and which will help in the development of the network of the Ecomuseum. The search for new sites is part of the development phase for the wider Flodden 500 project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The Flodden 500 project application is the first substantial cross-border project that the HLF hasconsidered and approved in recent years. The project will include new cross-border archaeological and historical research, cross-border education initiatives and commemorative events as well as the extension of the existing Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum sites from 12 to perhaps 30-40.


The aim of seeking nominations is to identify a ‘long list’ of as many Flodden related sites as possible. This list will be distilled down to a ‘preferred list’ of sites, perhaps 15 in Scotland and 10 in England to equal the balance of sites each side of the border, which will be included in the full Flodden 500 HLF application. If this application is successful these sites will be added into the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum with their own web pages, leaflets and new interpretation.
