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 will be marking all of them this summer, along with a vast range of talks, discussions, debates, and study mornings, from the dinosaurs right through to the Cold War and beyond.
