Description
Found beneath a parking lot by archaeologists from the University of Leicester in 2012, a centuries-old body was exhumed, and in 2013 the team proclaimed its find: the body was indeed that of Richard III, the last Plantagenet king, who had been made notorious after his death; indeed, he is one of Shakespeare's most memorable villains. But is the historical record the definitive one? Mike Pitts, editor of British Archaeology magazine, here takes us along on the search for the king's grave, and offers a page-turning, entertaining, and informed narrative that underscores the vastly different approaches of history and archaeology, and how the two nonetheless inform each other.

"Pitts effectively conveys the excitement of the discovery, clearly and vividly describing the process and the personalities. Writing this book must have been the dream of a lifetime for him, and he has risen to the occasion."Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"As gripping as any detective fiction. Proof that one doesn't need to be fascinated with Richard III to be enthralled by the story of his body's discovery."Publishers Weekly
