New book on Richard III discovery

Posted on: April 15, 2015 by

A book has recently been published by the team from Leicester University that uncovered the bones of Richard III in a Leicester car park in February 2013. Entitled The Bones of a King: Richard III Rediscovered, it was written by the Greyfriars research team with Maev Kennedy and Len Foxhall.

Of course we have commented on the subsequent litigation and the incredible fascination with the eventual reinterment of the King’s remains at Leicester Cathedral. But the book will provide a useful behind-the-scenes look at the process that led to the discovery – and all that has happened since. Who knew it could make for such a compelling read?
