The Battle of Bosworth (or Bosworth Field) was the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York that raged across England in the latter half of the 15th century. Fought on 22 August 1485, the battle was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, by his victory became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty. His opponent, Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle. Historians consider Bosworth Field to mark the end of the Plantagenet dynasty, making it a defining moment of English and Welsh history.

The machine will probably be a Classic from Souvenir Pennies, there are 4 designs, each costs £1 and a penny. You have to pay to access the machine as it is near the end of the exhibit section and in my opinion is not worth it, the exhibit is across two small rooms and the machine is in the last room. You might have to be very persuasive to get past for free.
