The Battle Of Towton 1461 Englands Deadliest Battle


Horrible Histories author Terry Deary tells the story of Britains biggest and bloodiest ever battle in which 28,000 soldiers died in a single day of slaughter during the Wars of the Roses. Terry unearths objects that tell of the extreme brutality of the Battle of Towton, including bullets, arrowheads and even the skeletons of some of the men who died near Tadcaster in North Yorkshire 550 years ago.An excellent look at the weapons used that day and the deadly wounds they inflicted maces war hammets and the like with weapons from the royal armouries which actually fit wounds in skulls
