King Richard III exhibition opens
A new exhibition has launched in Leicester to celebrate the discovery of Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England.
Mather & Co worked with Leicester City Council on creating Richard III: Leicester’s Search for a King, which tells the story of the project to discover and identify the king’s remains.
Launched just days after a skeleton found under a car park was officially confirmed as that of Richard III, the new exhibition at Leicester’s medieval Guildhall has been developed by Leicester Arts & Museum Service.
Giving visitors the chance to explore the historical and scientific evidence that has been gathered from the Greyfriars car park site, the exhibition brings together for the first time new evidence from historians, archaeologists and the very latest forensic science techniques including DNA bone analysis and carbon dating to give fresh insight into the life, death and burial of the king.
Visitors will be able to see an exact recreation of King Richard’s battle-scarred skull, based on detailed scans of the original skull carried out by the University of Leicester, together with an interactive skeleton centrepiece. There are also reconstructions, touch screen technology and archaeological finds and evidence bringing to life medieval Leicester and King Richard’s final days.
