Martin Marix Evans 1939 – 2020

We have received news from the Naseby Battlefield Project of the sad death of WWI and ECW expert, Martin Marix Evans, another victim, it seems, of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As The Naseby Project said, Martin was a tireless campaigner for battlefields heritage and preservation, and a founder member of both the Naseby Project and the Battlefields Trust. He was one of the ‘gang of 3’ who metal detected and logged the battlefield at Naseby and led the campaign to protect it from the building of the A14, then subsequently of the campaign to build a Visitor Centre fitting to the status of the battle that decided the struggle for Parliamentary democracy in Britain.

Martin was a great friend to the Pike and Shot Society
