Dr. Richard Buckley (OBE, BA, FSA, MiFa) from the University of Leicester will speak on this fascinating topic. In August and September 2012, a team of archaeologists from the University of Leicester set out to search for the final resting place of Richard III in a car park in central Leicester. Against all odds, the project proved to be successful in locating a potential candidate to be the king, and his identity was subsequently confirmed beyond reasonable doubt after an extensive program of scientific analysis, including a DNA match with modern-day relatives, generating press interest from all around the globe.
