Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre
Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre tells the dramatic story of the Battle of Bosworth, which took place on Monday 22nd August 1485 – an event beyond living memory which is of national and global significance. Set in the beautiful Leicestershire landscape, the Centre offers a range of indoor and outdoor activity which interprets the story from the start of the Wars of the Roses through to the battle, and its aftermath, and which extends the pupils’ understanding and knowledge to the time of the Tudors and their legacy, including the development of church, state and society in medieval Britain 1066-1509.
But the site also has another string to its bow – the site’s Roman History. Long before the Battle of Bosworth took place, the site housed an important Roman Temple. Tying into this, the site’s Roman character-led session explores the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain, the power of the Roman army, the reality of Roman life in Britain and the life and history of Boudicca.
Education sessions at Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre are delivered by a skilled team of re-enactors and museum educators. They are aimed at all groups and have strong links across the curriculum. The sessions include role play, real artefacts, object handling, film, dressing up and crafts, and interpret three of the biggest subjects in history – the Wars of the Roses, The Tudors and the Roman Empire.
All of our sessions are cross-curricular, they are created for K1-5 groups and they start from only £2.50 per pupil. And all educators can bring their family to the site for FREE for a pre-visit.
