The Battle of Danes Moor (or 'Dunsmoor') occurred, according to a local tradition, between the Danes and the Saxons on Danes Moor between Culworth and Edgecote, north-east of Banbury, Oxfordshire, at a crossing of a tributary of the River Cherwell.
According to 18th and 18th century sources, a local tradition derives the name Danes Moor from a ninth century battle between the Danes and the Anglo-Saxons, but the place-name expert Gover states that the name is of obscure origin and not derived from the word Danes. According to Martin Evans, the battle took place in 914 (i.e. after the ninth century), but he cites no sources. No battle at Danes Moor is mentioned by historians of Anglo-Saxon England.
