    How are we supposed to answer "how long?" You should ask whether the battle lasted minutes, hours, days, or weeks, and tell why you think one of the headings is correct. Example: "My research shows that the battle took place on August 22, 1485. Does that mean that it lasted the whole day?" – Tom Au Oct 1 '17 at 20:21

For many, 22 August 1485 remains one of the key dates in British history. Yet what exactly took place in the early hours of the morning (the battle was over by noon) still remains tantalisingly elusive. BBC Extra

    Well, I guess that takes it down to less than 12 hours. 6 if we assume the battle would not have started before dawn. – T.E.D. Oct 2 '17 at 13:57
