* Battle of Towton Landscape Project, The
"The Battle of Towton was the last of a series of battles in the middle of the War of the Roses, where the Lancastrian and Yorkshire forces faced each other in a snowstorm on Palm Sunday (the 29th of March) 1461. The Lancastrians lost the battle with heavy casualties and as a result, Edward IV was crowned king of England. Richard III later built a small chapel at Towton to commemorate the dead although the whereabouts of the remains of this structure are unknown." This site documents the finding of a mass grave and presents some other information from the archaeological dig from 1996.

At the request of North Yorkshire County Council Heritage Unit, a team of osteoarchaeologists and archaeologists from Archaeological Sciences, University of Bradford and members of the West Yorkshire Archaeology Service excavated the mass grave. They recovered the mostly complete remains of 43 individuals from a grave pit which measured 6m x 2m and was only 50 cm in depth."
