Summary
The events of Richard III's reign and his death in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth are known worldwide through Shakespeare's most performed, filmed and translated history play. 'Digging for Richard III' is the story of how his grave was found, the people behind the discovery and what it tells us. Told by a noted archaeologist with access to all the parties involved, it follows the quest from an idea born in an Edinburgh bookshop to the day, 14 years later, when two archaeologists carefully raised the bones from a car park in Leicester
