Digging for Richard III. How Archaeology found the King

Robinson, T.

Paperback. 248 pp. Illustrated. Revised and expanded edition. Thames and Hudson 2015.

Take a cast of archaeologists and historians who inhabit different worlds. Add a medieval king (1452-1485) who died in battle, and was revived by Shakespeare as the ultimate anti-hero. Throw in a forensic quest with almost unbelievable twists, and a theatrical modern burial with no parallel, and you have the material for an irresistible story for our times.

In the hands of a leading archaeologist and award-winning journalist, the search for a king’s grave becomes the page-turning, entertaining, informed narrative that makes Digging for Richard III the must-read title on the most sensational archaeological find for generations.
