Contrary to depictions in historical fiction and television, the Wars of the Roses was not just the story of Warwick the Kingmaker, Edward IV, Richard III, and the Princes in the Tower. Building on up-to-date historical research, we reconceptualise the civil wars of 1450-1500 by highlighting the ways in which peasants, townspeople, women, Welsh, and Irish experienced and influenced the conflict.
