#var:page_name# cover

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 programme of scientific analysis, generating press interest from all around the globe.

Richard Buckley is a graduate in archaeology from the University of Durham and has spent nearly 40 years working as an archaeologist in Leicester, specialising in complex Roman and medieval urban sites and historic buildings. He was lead archaeologist from the University of Leicester on the Search for Richard project.

Richard Buckley will be here to talk and present and answer questions on "The story of the search for England's Plantagenet King..."

Tickets are £7 and must be bought in advance.
