The Battle of Bosworth Field (or Battle of Bosworth) was the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York that extended across England in the latter half of the 15th century. Fought on 22 August 1485, the battle was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty by his victory and subsequent marriage to a Yorkist princess

August 22, 1485 - Richard III killed at Bosworth. Today's Bosworth Field boasts a visitor centre and a battlefield trail, but is it the real site of the battle?

Atherstone has a long history dating back to Roman times. It is said that the Battle of Bosworth actually took place in the fields of Merevale above Atherstone. An important defended Roman settlement named Manduessedum existed at Mancetter near the site of modern-day Atherstone, and the Roman road, the Watling Street (most of which later became part of the A5) ran through the town. It is believed by some historians that the rebel Queen of the Britons, Boudica was defeated at the Battle of Watling Street by the Romans in her final battle near Manduessedum. Certainly reparation was made to Atherstone after the battle and not to Market Bosworth.
