Try on some armour and see how heavy it was and see some real objects from the Battle of Bosworth!
The BFI gallery tells the amazing story of how archaeologists found the true location of the Battle of Bosworth Field.
The gallery reveals the methods used to locate the battlefield, what the evidence tells us about where and how the battle was fought, and the implications of this for future study of medieval warfare.
The interactive gallery offers the public the chance to see roundshot fired from artillery and bullets fired from early hand guns. Bosworth’s collection boasts more lead roundshot than from all the other battlefields of the 15th and 16th centuries put together.
Glenn Foard, Project Officer of the Battlefields Trust said: "Bosworth has shown the potential of archaeology to contribute to our understanding of the Origins of Firepower - a story of international significance which must now be explored on battlefields across Europe.
