Some articles that may be of interest

My latest research continues concentrating on Richard III when he was Richard Duke of Gloucester, and his dual role of Lord Protector and High Constable of England. From April to June 1483 was a key period in his life which has been inadequately examined.
In my recent book Richard Duke of Gloucester as Lord Protector (… etc.) I published a study of these key national offices.
More recently I undertook a thoroughgoing new edition / translation of the sole contemporary text covering these months in 1483: Domenico Mancini de occupatione regni Anglie. This had been accepted for too long in its weighted translation by C.A.J. Armstrong, who put the word ‘usurpation’ into Mancini’s mouth. 
My new analysis has led me to investigate Mancini’s uniquely detailed account of the events that led up to Gloucester’s removing Edward V from his Woodville escort at the end of April and bringing the new king to London in May. My article The Mysterious Affair at Stony Stratford can be read at this site as Item 16 under my page RICARDIAN TOPICS.
