Course Description

The Battle of Towton on Palm Sunday 1461 has been described as ‘the largest and bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil’. The nineteen year old Edward of York took no prisoners and ordered ‘no quarter’ resulting in innumerable casualties as he battled in a snowstorm to avenge the death of his father, Richard Duke of York. Discover the story behind the battle, why and how the battle was fought, and how Towton secured the throne of England for Edward IV. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
