British Battle Stats
Went to an interesting talk for work today at the Digital Humanities Hub at the University of Birmingham. It was by a guy doing his PhD (name to follow) who was doing spatial statistical analysis on all the battles fought on British soil. The graph above shows for each century the average difference in heights across the battlefields, and the columns at right shows the average across all locations in the UK. The simple message being that most British battles were fought on relatively flat ground!
