Battle of Bosworth site unveiled


The true site of one of the most decisive battles in English history has been revealed.

The battle of Bosworth in 1485 saw the death of Richard III.

It was believed to have taken place on Ambion Hill in Leicestershire, but an archaeological survey of the area has now pinpointed a site two miles to the south west.

Ben Godfrey reports.
