The Wars of the Roses
In this activity students analyse a royal family tree to make deductions regarding the changing fortunes of the Houses of Lancaster and York. Further stimulus material leads into a research phase in which students try to determine whether other royals – all of whom have received a royal burial – were equally or even more cruel and / or incompetent than Richard III.
