Cravant

Cravant a small village at the confluence of the rivers Yonne and Cure in the Yonne department, was the site of a battle between the combined armies of the English and Burgundians and the French and Scottish during the Hundred Years War in 1423. Whilst laying siege to the town, the Franco Scottish army were taken unawares by English reinforcements called in by the besieged Claude de Chastellux, and, pinned between the English and the town’s defenders, suffered a devastating defeat.
