A plan of Fishguard Bay

After what feels like a long break, our regular website feature Item of the Month is back. For September, we have a military map that tells the story of a fascinating episode in the French Revolutionary War - the Battle of Fishguard Bay.
This was an attempt at invading Britain, to cause national unrest and stimulate a popular uprising against the ruling classes. F3848_s.jpgThe invasion didn't suceed. Find out why, in the full item of the month, on the museum website.Renee (Digital Resources Librarian)
