Expert talk – Julian Humphrys – the Crusaders’ Last Stand: the Great Siege of Malta, 1565
May 1, 2020
While Mary Queen of Scots was marrying Lord Darnley in 1565 and Elizabeth's Privy Council was debating the antics of the Border Reivers, the forces of Christian Europe ( well some of them) were involved in a desperate struggle with the Ottomans on the Mediterranean island of Malta. The Great Siege, as it became known, is a fantastic story, and battlefield historian has actually recently been over in Malta and so was inspired to do a talk for us.
