The Battle of Dunbar, on 3 Sep 1650, was a decisive battle of the Third English Civil War. The Third English Civil War is often seen as part of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms although this conflict was fought between Royalists supporters of Charles II and the Parliament, under Oliver Cromwell.

The English Parliamentarian forces under Oliver Cromwell defeated a Scottish, French and Albanian army commanded by David Leslie, loyal to King Charles II. Charles, already King of Scots, had been pronounced King of Great Britain, Ireland and France on 5 February 1649.

The battlefield has been inventoried and protected by Historic Scotland under the Historic Environment (Amendment) Act 2011.
