News at Eleven: [Professor Dafydd] Johnston, director of

the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies in Aberystwyth, said the examination of the skeleton's wounds is backed up by a poem which was probably written within weeks of the battle.

"It sheds an entirely new light on a familiar poem by a Welsh poet called Guto'r Glyn," said Prof Johnston.

"He composed a poem in praise of Rhys ap Tomos, one of the main supporters of Henry Tudor in his campaign to gain the crown of England."
