Summary
"Digging for Richard III" is the page-turning story of how the grave was found of England's most disputed monarch (and probable murderer of the Princes in the Tower) under a car park in Leicester. It is the first complete narrative of a project that blended passion, science, luck and detection: a Tutankhamun for our times. The events of Richard IIIs reign and his death in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth are known worldwide through Shakespeares most performed, filmed and translated history play. This book tells the story of how his grave was found, the people behind the discovery and what it tells us.
