I was privileged to attend another of his talks, Arming Richard, during the re-interment week. It was held at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre, Sutton Cheney and was extremely interesting and enjoyable. He explained how it felt to wear the armour and the training he had had to do, as well as showing us how a noble knight such as Richard would be armed.

He is a natural and fluent speaker and a very friendly guy as well, so I would thoroughly recommend any talk by him.

  1. Dom has just informed me that tickets can be bought by emailing his mum, here: christinasmee@gmail.com, or you can buy them on the door.
