The rediscovery of the battlefield of Bosworth, lost for hundreds of years is a great story involving four years of painstaking archaeology and analysis drawing on the interpretation of the landscape and historic sources. The rediscovery of King Richard III's body in the last year has further added to the picture of the events of 1485.

Professor Anne Curry is Dean of Humanities at the University of Southampton. She was the leading historian on the Project to rediscover the Battlefield of Bosworth and co-author of Bosworth 1485 the Battlefield Rediscovered, the peer reviewed report on the project.

Our hosts will be the Fusiliers Museum and the event includes a sandwich lunch a glass of wine and the opportunity to network in the exclusive surroundings of the Fusiliers mess in HM Tower of London
