Gunpowder Warfare

Although gunpowder weapons were used from the end of the 13th century, their use in large numbers for mass effect wasn’t fully established until the end of the 15th century.

They became progressively dominant in warfare until the industrial revolution in the mid 18th century, when they had become the essential weapon of war. This was a turbulent period for Lincolnshire, although the scars of the landscape are not easy to find.
