Throughout the late medieval period, from 1300 to 1500, England and France were bitter enemies, often at war or on the brink of it. In 1520, in an effort to bring conflict to an end, England's monarch, Henry VIII, and Francis I of France agreed to meet at "the Field of Cloth of Gold". The author offers a fresh appraisal of this historical event.
