Richard III

The Life, Death and Discovery of Richard III

In 2012 the discovery of the remains of Richard III by a team of archaeologists from Leicester University reignited debate about this controversial historical figure.

Our exhibition covers Richard’s life, his rise to power, the princes in the Tower, his death at Bosworth and the discovery of his grave. Saint or sinner – you decide!
