Richard III: The King under the Car Park was just as interesting and informative as I expected. I particularly liked the organization of the book. It begins with general information about the Greyfriars Project, Richard III and Leicester and then moves to specifics. Other strengths are the writing style and the illustrations and photographs accompanying the text, many of which I had not seen previously on the Internet. I enjoyed the irony in Richard Buckley's emails to Dr. Jo Appleby and Dr. Turi King making it clear how little chance there was of finding the king's remains. Something else I really appreciated since I couldn't travel to the UK was the inclusion of John Aggs's illustrations of Richard III's last moments. Some of the illustrations I had seen on the Internet but others were new to me.

I can highly recommend this book to anyone interested in archeology in general and the discovery of the last Plantagenet king in particular.Richard III: The King Under the Car Park: The Story of the Search for England's Last Plantagenet King

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SCIENTISTS' STORY 8 Jan 2014
By Steve B
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have already read and reviewed Michael Jones & Philippa Langley's book "The King's Grave" which focusses on the historical and human interest aspects of the story. Well, this is the archaelogists' version which concentrates on the science. Don't be put off by this- it's a highly readable account aimed at the general reader, with excellent illustrations. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL BOOK 9 Jan 2014
By Coxie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Of all the books that have published on this tremendous find of Richard The Third,this is certainly the best!
A well written book,packed with plenty of detail and tremendous illustrations and photographs. It has encompassed the history,of the great man,as well as the details of the dig. The artists impressions of the area where he was laid to rest are wonderful.
Reading it made me very proud to live in Leicester.
I would recommend this inexpensive book to anyone with an interest in our heritage. Fantastic!!!!
