100 Places - Loss & Destruction
From Marston Moor, the site of the largest battle ever fought on English soil; to the Euston Arch which was lost to heritage destruction; to the Barnsley Main Colliery which saw the horrific 'Oaks explosion' that changed English law - we think everyone should know about the places that have witnessed England's most important historic events.
Tell us about places that mark, or were marked by, wars, battles, or disasters that you think needs to be in our list of 100 Places. Our expert judge for this category, scholar and classicist Mary Beard, will be choosing her top ten from your nominations. Watch this space or subscribe to our podcast (by searching for '100 Places' on your podcast player) to find out her choices.
Nominations in the Loss & Destruction category close on 3 December 2017.
