Speaking at Hungerford Literary Festival

John Ashdown-Hill will present us with a new Richard III, no longer a passive victim, simply awaiting death or defeat, but an active king pursuing his own agenda. John will reveal Richards last 150 days, a new re-examination of the aftermath of Bosworth, how Richards body was treated, his subsequent burial and the building of his tomb.

Based on John’s research the Scottish Branch of the Richard III Society launched a project with the working title of Looking For Richard; In Search of a King. This is a fascinating story, a blend of science and history that will interest anyone whose imagination has been ignited by the furore surrounding the disinterment of Richard III.
