Richard III remains one of the most controversial rulers in history. Whether he was guilty of murdering his nephews or not is a mystery that perhaps will never be solved. Even the location of the battlefield where, on 22 August 1485, Richard was struck down has been a matter of debate.
This book leads you on a journey through the landscape of Richard’s time. It visits the resplendent castles, towering cathedrals, and manor houses associated with Richard, such as Middleham Castle, Richard’s adopted childhood home, and Tewkesbury Abbey, where he helped his brother Edward IV secure his throne. The Middle Ages come alive as each location is explored through engaging narrative and an extensive collection of photographs, floor plans and images.
