Wars Of The Roses: A Time Team Special

8:00pm Wednesday, March 16 on C4

The Battle of Bosworth was the decisive battle of the Wars of the Roses. It was a turning point in English history, the end of the Middle Ages and the savage beginnings of the country we recognise today. For the last five years, a team of archaeologists have been combing this blood-stained ground. Tony Robinson discovers that what these archaeologists found is changing the entire understanding, not just of this iconic battle, but the very nature of warfare at this time.
