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
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!!!!
This is not a dry academic work but a lively and very well written account of the excavation and its background. It is refreshing to read that the authors state when there is uncertainty about their conclusions by using words such as 'possibly' or 'probably'.
The book is a large format paperback - the size of a couple of 'normal' paperbacks - and of sixty five pages. The book is very well illustrated indeed and its size make the illustrations particularly information and clear. All of these illustrations are in colour where possible and include photographs, maps, plans, old prints and, what are particularly attractive, reconstructive drawings of medieval Leicester, the Friary, and even the King's possible monument.
Pity about the facial reconstruction on the near to the end page: I am very sceptical about this procedure as we cannot know what Richard's hair, eyes, nose, ears, lips etc. were really like. Good protruding lower jaw however!
An excellent description of the excavation and its background; this is the book to buy if you are interested in this subject.
