The Greatest Plague: England at War in the Late Fifteenth Century. Dr Toby Capwell (Curator of Arms & Armour, The Wallace Collection, London)
King Edward III had too many sons. Out of his progeny came a bitter conflict which turned the medieval English nobility on each other, destroying their military dominance in France and causing the downfall of the Plantagenet dynasty. Join Dr. Toby Capwell for a journey through what was later called ‘The Wars of the Roses’, examining the battles, tactics, arms and armour, and foremost, the realities of war in the fifteenth century.
