  1. Excellent as always. Bloody Meadow was at the end of the battle rather than the main plain it was fought on but you're right that Towton is famous for it, as is Tewkesbury. You might want to edit the graphics a little – you have Towton as Townton and half of Norfolk has disappeared into The Wash when Edward is marching north. But that aside, superbly put together once again.
