Tewkesbury May 4th 1471

Posted May 4th, 2014 at 02:58 PM by Crystal Rainbow

Margaret was starting to panic. She had to get her army to Tewkesbury where they could cross the river Severn and get into Wales.

Margaret and Anne headed toward Tewkesbury Abbey; both hoping for...

Richard, the Duke of Gloucester had listened to the Duke of Albany's grievances about his brother the King James III while traveling northwards .

Berwick on Tweed, 1482 part 1

I had found out about the dig was actually about to start in mid August last year. I had found out that the dig was going to take part on the anniversary of Bosworth. I had decided to make a last minute plea to stop and for her to consider what she was about to do.
