New book relocates Battle of Bosworth

For centuries, everyone knew that the Battle of Bosworth, which led to the death of Richard III and the ascendence of the Tudors, took place on Ambion Hill, but new research by Glenn Foard and Anne Curry places the site two miles away by a marsh called Fen Hole.

In their book Bosworth 1485: A Battlefield Rediscovered, Foard and Curry describe pinpointing the Fen location by analyzing "documentary evidence, reconstructing the historic terrain and undertaking systematic archaeological surveys using metal detectors."

The book was launched at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre during a major weekend of re-enactments and special events.
