Pictures of site of the Battle of Bosworth Field

 
Click below for pictures of the true Bosworth battlefield, where Richard III was slain on 22nd August 1485 fighting Henry Tudor, who became Henry VII, Henry VIII's father. The site is on private land off Foxcovert Lane, which runs into an old Roman road known as Fenn Lanes near the village of Stoke Golding. The battlefield is about 1.5 miles southwest of Ambion Hill, which was previously considered the location of Richard's death.
 
Announcements about the exact location of the Battle of Bosworth were made in 2009 following research led by the Battlefields Trust and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Their archaeological evidence included a significant collection of roundshot and a silver-gilt boar, Richard III's emblem, found next to a small mediaeval marsh (Richard III was killed when his horse got stuck in marshy ground).
