Harringworth Fieldwork Group have organised a talk in Harringworth Village Hall on Friday 10th November 2017 from 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Tickets £5 per person.
Richard III: The king under the car park
The discovery of King Richard III’s remains during an archaeological excavation in 2012 was a world-wide sensation; a 500 year old missing persons case bought to life through modern archaeological and forensic investigation. In Richard III: The king under the car park, Mathew Morris, one of the lead archaeologists on the Grey Friars Project, will reveal how this amazing discovery was made; examining the background to the project, showing how archaeologists knew where to look and what was found during the excavation, and taking a close look at how forensic scientists were able to successfully identify 500 year old skeletal remains as Richard III, the last Plantagenet king of England (d.1485).
