Expertly written history book about Richard III and his journey from kingship to the grave under a car park in Leicester. Amy Licence is one of the best historical writers out there. Entertaining, with a wealth of precise information, she writes a readable history book that is written in a folksy, but interesting style. She is not an apologist, but a responsible historian out to give as much information as she can without imposing her own point of view. I will read more of what she's done!

Very Good read as an introduction to anything relating to Richard 111 and his life story. Would be an ideal short history lesson for a student specialising in Richard 111

Ms Licence needs to check her facts better. Professor Caroline Wilkinson is employed by the University of Dundee and not Glasgow. And it would also have added to the completeness of the story about finding Richard lll's skeleton if it had been reported that Dr Joe Appleby, the University of Leicester osteologist, used a pick axe during the dig and pierced Richard lll's skull!

Well-written and accessible; perhaps more suitable for those who are new to this period, but still with enough information to satisfy those who are knowledgeable. Beautifully illustrated.

Having followed the dig from concept to success,it is remarkable for the ambition and the goal to be achieved.Even the archaeologists were doubtful. They thought they would find the church, but not the body. For the dream to become reality is exceptional.I can think of no other dig that has succeeded in so many of its goals.,This book is a great springboard to deeper investigation. Could be adapted for a younger audience,with care.
