* 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.
