The Wars of the Roses with Stephen Bourne
Thursday, May 11, 7 p.m.
In the turbulent history of the English speaking peoples, there have been few conflicts to match the dynastic power struggle of the 15th century that we call The Wars of the Roses. This century-long civil strife saw the end of the Plantagenet dynasty and the emergence of the Tudor era. Local historian and author, Stephen Bourne, will present this sequel to his first presentation in the series, Murder & Mayhem in the 15th Century: The Cold Case of Richard III.
