In August 2012, the University of Leicester in collaboration with the Richard III Societyand Leicester City Council, began one of the most ambitious archaeological projects ever attempted: no less than a search for the lost grave of King Richard III. The last English king to die in battle. Incredibly, the excavation uncovered not only the friary of Grey Friars but also a battle-scarred skeleton with spinal curvature. On 4th February 2013, the University announced to the world’s press that these were the remains of King Richard III. Hear from Charlotte Barratt about the discovery.
