Dussindale, battle of

Dussindale, battle of, 1549. Kett's rebellion in Norfolk in 1549 posed a formidable threat to the government of Protector Somerset, since it coincided with widespread disorders in the west country. One relief force under William Parr, Lord Northampton was driven out of Norwich and Lord Sheffield killed. In August Lord Warwick (Northumberland) was dispatched with a sizeable force, stiffened by German mercenaries. Warwick avoided being trapped in the alleyways of the city and attacked on 27 August just outside the walls. After heavy fighting and a successful cavalry charge against the rebels, Warwick offered pardon, which most of the peasants accepted.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
