The Wars of the Roses were, in many ways, an arms race between plate armour and projectiles. We will show how armour developed, its strengths and weaknesses, and some of the weapons used on the battlefield.
Living History encampments, Live History Live, Saturday party & fireworks, plus Pop-up History events are all FREE with your entrance to the festival. Entrance is free to those who have a paid-for talk ticket, or you can buy entrance tickets for the weekend below.
