Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and Country Park marks a famous turning point in British history – the death of a King and the birth of the all powerful Tudor dynasty in 1485. A new exhibition lets visitors journey through history from England in 1455 through to a modern day historical research laboratory. During their journey they witness the horror of Medieval warfare, and its effect on the country and its people.

On 22 August 1485, in the heart of rural Leicestershire, two armies faced each other. This decisive battle would witness the death of the King and the birth of a dynasty that would last for 122 years. It was the last time that an English King was killed in battle.

The story of that turbulent time is told step by step through the eyes of some of the participants – John (English Yeoman Archer), Collette (French mercenaries’ wife), Alice (Publican’s Daughter) and Lord Stanley – through a series of talking head videos. To facilitate the story telling we supplied and installed 15 LCD screens, 15 video players, 12 sound domes, 13 buttons, 14 induction loops and 12 amplifiers. The story of the battle itself is told in the exciting and atmospheric “Battle Room” where a seven minute looping show projects the movements of the armies onto a central “Battle Table” whilst all around artefacts, weapons, armour, sounds and video films are played to enhance the experience. Blackbox-av supplied, programmed and installed a complex show and lighting control system for the “Battle Room” as well as numerous high resolution projectors and video players.

The whole exhibition was designed by Studio MB and was officially opened early in 2008.
