Reflections of the Yorkist Realm is a new website created by historian David Santiuste and photographer Rae Tan (both of whom are active members of the Towton Battlefield
Society). It features images of places associated with the Yorkist period of
English history, together with complementary text.
The Yorkist era is best known for the Wars of the Roses, so naturally there is some emphasis on the conflicts of the period, including the Battle of Towton. However, Rae and David have also chosen locations that can be linked to more peaceful aspects of this time, such as religious life and trade. Other places have been singled out because they
have strong connections with particular individuals, including King Richard III.
With the combination of Rae’s photographs and David’s words, this is a unique
interpretation of the medieval heritage. To visit the website please go to http://www.yorkistrealm.com/.
