Staff from the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre gathered at Fenn Lane farm, an area thought to be the closest point to where the King lost his life in battle.
It was in this area that the 'Bosworth Boar' was found, a solid silver, gilded badge worn by someone of high rank, such as a knight from the King's household.
This badge was found on the edge of the only dated medieval marsh, suggesting that this could be the site where Richard III lost his horse in that final melee, before losing his life on August 22nd 1485.

Campaigners have lost their fight against proposals to expand one of the largest granite quarries in Europe.
Leicestershire County Council has voted to approve plans to extend Mountsorrel Quarry.
Some residents had opposed the proposals on grounds of noise and increased dust pollution.
LaFarge Tarmac, which runs the Quarry, says that new stone is running low at the 150-year-old quarry. Currently, the site produces and distributes around four million tonnes of crushed granite each year, which is used in construction projects throughout the East Midlands, as well as nationally thanks to its rail freight link at nearby Barrow-upon-Soar.
