Stoke Field Battlefield
Nowadays Stoke Field Battlefield, just outside Newark, is just an empty field but it is the location of the battle of the infamous Wars of the Roses. Now the scene of a bloody conflict, which rewrote the history books, is being brought back to life in a joint project between Nottinghamshire County Council and the Battlefields Trust.
A new history trail, featuring five oak panels which describe the background to the battle, the bloody events of the day and the aftermath, will bring the fascinating untold story of this bloody battle to a new audience.
Visitors will be able to travel back in time by downloading videos, starring re-enactors in full historical costume, who tell the harrowing, first-hand accounts of the people who were actually there and experienced the battle.
