Abstract:
In July 1996 construction workers at Towton Hall uncovered a previously unrecorded mass grave containing approximately 25 individuals. Archaeological excavation of an adjacent area in September 1996 revealed a continuation of the grave. A further minimum number of 43 individuals were excavated and recorded. The human remains were believed to have been the victims of the Battle of Towton 1461, the largest battle of the Wars of the Roses. [Au]
