Richard III exhibition

Leicester’s Search for a King.

Visitors can find out more about one of the most exciting archaeological discoveries of recent years at the Richard III: Leicester’s Search for a King exhibition in the medieval Guildhall. In September 2012, Leicester became the centre of international media frenzy when an archaeological excavation in a car park in the middle of the city uncovered a skeleton. Was this the long-lost body of Richard III, the last English king to be killed in battle? The Guildhall exhibition has been developed by Leicester Arts & Museums Service to introduce the remarkable story behind this excavation, narrated by those working on the project. The exhibition will allow visitors the chance to explore the historical and scientific evidence that has been gathered from the Greyfriars site.
