Summary
In an incredible find, Richard III's remains have been uncovered beneath a car park in Leicester. In alternate chapters, Philippa Langley, whose years of research and belief that she would find Richard in this exact spot, reveals the inside story of the search for the king's grave, and historian Michael Jones tells of Richard's 15th-century life and death. The result is a compelling portrayal of one of our greatest archaeological discoveries, allowing a complete re-evaluation of our most controversial monarch - one that discards the distortions of later Tudor histories and puts the man firmly back into the context of his times
