Interesting but became a little turgid in parts. Clearly, tensions between the University of Leicester academics and certain individuals, leading up to the re internment of Richard, add the human interest factor.

A well balanced book, combining the modern day search for Richard's remains and the research of his life. It has shown the king to be a different person to that which has been portrayed for centuries

A really interesting and well written book, not heavy going at all. I admire Philippa Langley for her hard work and dedication to the project. A book that I could not put down once I started it.

This is the record of an archaeological discovery I was keen to own from the moment I knew it would be published. Every Ricardian will already have their copy of this book so who shall I recommend it to?

Philippa Langley and Michael Jones have between them produced, not only a definitive account of the archaeological dig and the scientific analysis of the wounds inflicted on Richard before and after his death but also a well-balanced view of the man in life; the man behind the Tudor myth.

As has been mentioned,the chapters alternate between the dig and the history. The result of this is a book that is not bogged down by either the history or the dig itself. If this lady had not had a sense of destiny about finding King Richard then he would not have been found;it's as simple as that. Any book that makes us interested in the past has to be applauded.
There is a very good novel, The Sunne in Splendour' by Sharon Penman, which covers the life of King Richard.

A brilliant book. I could not put it down. The two stories of the history of Richard iii and the search for him running along side one another was really good. Very well written.
