Ten Years On

In August it will be ten years since the Greyfriars archaeological dig, which uncovered the remains of King Richard III remains, took place.

At the Visitor Centre, we are marking the anniversary with a programme of exclusive talks given by some of the experts involved in the dig and the identification process which followed.
