THE BATTLE OF TOWTON TOOK PLACE ON MARCH 29, 1461 AS PART OF THE WAR OF THE ROSES. THIS WAR WAS FOUGHT BETWEEN THE HOUSE OF YORK AND THE HOUSE OF LANCASTER AND WAS THE LARGEST AND BLOODIEST BATTLE EVER FOUGHT ON ENGLISH SOIL !!! OUT OF THE APPROXIMATELY 50,000 SOLDIERS WHO FOUGHT THAT DAY, 28,000 DIED ON THE BATTLEFIELD...
THIS DAGGER HAS A NICE, THIN WIRE WRAPPED GRIP, ENDING IN A TURKS HEAD KNOT AT THE TOP OF THE GRIP.
