2016 sees the centenary of three very important battles of the First World War: the naval Battle of Jutland, the French and German ten-month Battle of Verdun, and of course the Battle of the Somme, so indelibly marked on our national consciousness. Now in its sixth year, The Daily Mail Chalke Valley History Festival marked all of them. The week long festival also included a vast range of talks, discussions, debates, and study mornings, from the dinosaurs right through to the Cold War and beyond. Read more about the 2016 festival.
