My Kingdom for a Horse!

boar badge

The battle of Bosworth ended Richard III’s rule and put the first Tudor, Henry, on the throne.

Now, archeologists have conclusively located the battlefield where it happened (in 1485).

They even found, right on the field, a silver badge, shaped like a boar. These badges were worn only by Richard’s most-trusted knights, so this is pretty cool. If this kind of thing is cool to you.
