Join brilliant and engaging historian Dan Jones, as he completes his epic history of medieval England with a new book, Hollow Crown, which explores the rise of the Tudors, and the tearing apart of the Plantagenet dynasty during the Wars of the Roses.

The fifteenth century experienced the longest and bloodiest series of civil wars in British history. The crown of England changed hands violently seven times as the great families of England fought to the death for power, majesty and the right to rule.

With vivid descriptions of the battle of Towton, where 28,000 men died in a single morning, to Bosworth, where the last Plantagenet king was hacked down, this is the real story behind Shakespeare’s famous history plays.
