Bosworth Field: a battlefield rediscovered?
The Bosworth Project concluded that the deciding battle in The Wars of the Roses was fought entirely at Fenn Lane and the site proposed is the only feasible candidate. However, the authors suggest that the narrative provided overlooks or downplays key aspects of contemporaneous accounts to support those conclusions. It is instead proposed that the primary site of battle was in a nearby location and an alternative narrative is offered that matches more of, and better accommodates, the contemporary accounts of battle events.
