From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Battle of Yeavering (or Battle of Geteryne) was fought on July 22, 1415 between English and Scottish forces near Yeavering in Northumberland. A small English force consisting of 440 men led by the Earl of Westmoreland defeated 4,000 Scots. Fought in the same year as the Battle of Agincourt which famously demonstrated the efficacy of the longbow against cavalry, it is notable that the English side at Yeavering consisted mostly of archers.

The site is marked by a Battle Stone, probably an originally a bronze age standing stone.
