A CONFERENCE could reveal more about the history of a West Oxfordshire village.

'Dynasty and Disappearance: Francis Lovell, Richard III and The Tudors' takes place at the Old Swan hotel in Minster Lovell on Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

Author Steve David will launch his first ever book published on Francis Lovell, an ally of Richard III in the War of the Roses, and part of the family that gave the village its name.

The book argues that Mr Lovell returned to his ancestral home in the village and hid from Henry VII after the Battle of Stoke in 1487.

In 1706, the skeleton of a man was found in a chamber at the family mansion in Minster Lovell, but the identity has never been proven.

The conference also includes a guided tour of Minster Lovell Hall and St Kenelm's Church, plus refreshments.

Tickets are available for £15 on the door.
