Reflections of the Yorkist Realm

Reflections of the Yorkist Realm is a new website created by historian David Santiuste and photographer Rae Tan. Now available at www.yorkistrealm.com, it features images of places associated with the Yorkist period of English history (the later fifteenth century), together with complementary text.
The Yorkist era is best known for the Wars of the Roses: a series of bloody civil wars. Many of the period’s most famous personalities – including King Richard III – died through violence. For many years, however, there were no battles, so Rae and David have also chosen locations that have connections with more peaceful aspects of this time, such as religious life and trade. The website features places from all over England, and also encompasses relevant historical sites in Belgium, France and Wales.
Reflections of the Yorkist Realm provides a unique interpretation of the heritage around us. It will appeal to anybody with an interest in England’s medieval past.
