But it wasMoreBosworth is one of the most iconic of English battles. Here Richard III suffered what, thanks to Shakespeare, is arguably the most memorable death of any English king, bringing an end to the Wars of the Roses and heralding the Tudor era. But it was also England s most famous lost battlefield. To find and explore the site, the authors led an intensive programme of research, using a wide range of academic disciplines.

Bosworth 1485: A battlefield rediscovered is the result. Techniques included documentary analysis, landscape archaeology, place name study and, most important, metal detecting survey. Using the resulting evidence the book explores the battle and battlefield from the composition of the armies to the terrain in which the battle was fought. They may even have found the very place where Richard fell. Yet most important is the evidence for early gunpowder weapons. Using cutting edge scientific research and ballistic experiments the authors reveal, for the first time, how to read the evidence on medieval lead round shot, just as a ballistic examiner reveals the story of a modern bullet.
