Battle of Bosworth site revealed


Archaeologists are set to reveal the correct location of the Battle of Bosworth today after years of argument and debate over the exact field in which it was fought.

Archaeologists believe they may have also identified the exact place where Richard III was killed by Henry Tudor's forces in August 1485, marking the decisive moment in the Wars of The Roses. Bob Walker reports from the site.
