This important battle took place just outside Durham in 1346 and saw the complete defeat of the Scottish army by the English, and the further humiliation of the capture of David II, King of Scots, along with four of his earls. For the next eleven years, he was held prisoner by the English until the Kingdom of Scotland agreed a ransome to buy his freedom.
