THE RICHARD III SOCIETY
STOP PRESS
THE NEWS WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR


Monday 4th February 2013

10.00am Leicester University Press Conference to reveal the results of a series of scientific investigations into human remains – which are possibly those of King Richard III.

9.00pm Channel Four documentary The King in the Car Park the full inside story of the hunt for Richard III.

Also please note the following:
 The March Bulletin will be delayed by 3-4 weeks to allow coverage and analysis of the test results and the Channel Four documentary. The issue will also carry colour photographs of the facial reconstruction.
 There will be a special Bulletin Extra issued shortly after the 4th February providing all members with a summary of the test results and a first glimpse of the facial reconstruction.
 The Bulletin Extra will also include details and a booking form for a special Society conference to be held on the 2nd March in Leicester. This conference will be the first event following the test results to focus on the impact of the dig on the reputation of Richard III. Speakers will include Philippa Langley, John Ashdown-Hill, Annette Carson, Toby Capwell and Caroline Wilkinson who was responsible for the facial reconstruction. It will be chaired by the historian Chris Skidmore MP and will also be addressed by the Mayor of Leicester Sir Peter Soulsby. Get the date in your diary!
 The Society’s website has been redesigned and will be launched on the 4th February.

It’s an exciting time for all Ricardians

The marks on the skull indicate that scottsword gangs, as we see them in-game, are actually historically accurate, and that armor was indeed no match for said swords.

But seriously, they molested him pretty badly.
