Solving a 500 Year Old Cold Case - Talk by Professor Turi King 21.9.17

We were delighted to welcome Professor Turi King, University of Leicester Professor of Public Engagement, to the School on Thursday 21 September

Professor King presented her fascinating talk on the archaeology and genetics of finding and identifying Richard III. 

The talk covered the history, science, hard work (and at points good luck!) which led to the discovery of Richard III in 2012 under a Leicester car park and his subsequent identification and reburial.
