The history of King Richard III will be remembered today, as part of a medieval battle re-enactment, hosted by the University of Leicester.
The event, "Bringing History to Life" has been organised by the University's Re-enactment Society.
It will cover the time of Richard III's death at the Battle of Bosworth in Leicestershire in 1485.
And passers by can watch combat demonstrations, try on chain mail, and hear from researchers about the uncovering of human remains, at the possible site of King Richard III's burial.
Members of the University's re-enactment group, have even been approached with the offer of appearing as extras in film and TV shows, including the hugely successful HBO series Game of Thrones and Faintheart.
