The Authority and Legitimacy of the Crown is in question as York and Lancaster compete for the throne. The story is followed from the 100 years war and the Peasants revolt to the final decisive battle at Bosworth, taking in strong characters like Queen Margaret, Warwick the King Maker, Henry "Hotpsur", this most puzzling of time periods is explained and made clear. Prices depend on distance from Nottingham, I will work for less for charities

About Gareth Howell

I regularly appear on BBC Radio Nottingham as an historical adviser, most notably as the military historian when Armed Forces Day was hosted at Nottingham. I have also spoken on BBC Notts on topics as diverse as Richard 3rd, the tanks, the home guard and the Easter Rising (for which I also appeared on a programme with BBC Ulster). I am also a regular guest speaker for Abingdon Museum in Oxfordshire, the British Biomedical Institute, Buxton Museum and various Rotary clubs. I have done some TV work for BBC Ulster and for Channel 4. If you have a particular interest for a history talk that's not on the list, feel free to ask if I'd be able to field a talk on the subject, after all the worst I could say is no!

I am a confident and engaging speaker after many years teaching in a Nottingham Secondary school.
