Papers on the Staffordshire Hoard

Here are some fabulous papers on the Staffordshire Hoard Synposium, that was held in March 2010.

It's also the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Towton: the bloodiest battle in English history, that ended the War of the Roses. A massive 28,000 men died in the battle, and there's a new mass grave about to be opened.

A previous one furnished the material for Blood Red Roses: which was shocking, surprising and illuminating evidence just how men met their ends in battle, as well as what kind of wounds they suffered in earlier battles, and survived.
