                   The Search for Richard III
                                   a talk by
                    Richard Buckley, OBE, PhD


One of the mysteries surrounding Richard III is where he was buried. In 2012, a team of archaeologists from the University of Leicester set out to search for his final resting place under a parking lot in central Leicester. Against all odds, the project located the burial site of the king, who died in 1485 in the Battle of Bosworth Field. In this lecture, Richard Buckley, the leader of this team will tell the remarkable story of this search and the complex process of confirming Richard's identity.
