Photographer's Note

Photo shows typical Bernese house façade from Swiss town of Laupen. Laupen is situated in the Canton of Bern, around 20km south-west of Swiss capital city of Bern.

It was the site of the Battle of Laupen in 1339 with decisive victory for Bern and its Swiss Confederation allies against the town of Fribourg.

Laupen was one of a string of battles presaging the definite decline of High Medieval heavy cavalry in the face of improving infantry tactics during the following century and led to Bern joining the Swiss Confederation in 1353.
