Experts suggest alternate site for Battle of Bosworth

For nearly the 500 years since it took place, experts have disputed the location of the Battle of Bosworth which saw the defeat of Richard III. Now a team of historians and archaeologists believe they have found the site.

The new site, according to the latest study, is two miles to the south and west of the current marker bearing the plaque: "Richard, the last Plantagenet King of England, was slain here 22nd August, 1485." The new study was based on soil samples, metal detector results and hours of study of ancient documents.
