“Lord Towton I just adore your house and that sculpture.” The American tourist pointed to the large chain mail upside down helmet.
“Thats a memorial to the downed men of Towton Battle. Come see the dining room.” They entered a large room. A beautiful carved oak table seating thirty overwhelmed the room but all eyes went to the deep holes excavated in the floor. “Towton Battlefield. Won the War of the Roses for Edward IV. Seventy five thousand dead. Probably most reluctant. Right on top of the battlefield we are. We’re never short for a conversation topic during dinner.”
