The University of Leicester and Leicester City Council, in association with the Richard III Society, have undertaken one of the most exciting archaeological investigations ever carried out. No less than a search for the bodily remains of the last Plantagenet King - Richard III - killed at the Battle of Bosworth.

In this short film Co-Director of ULAS, Richard Buckley, gives his personal account of the Greyfriars Dig from an Archaeological perspective.

A more comprehensive account of the search for the remains of King Richard III, and the final chapter in the story can be seen later this year on Channel 4 in a full length documentary made by Darlow Smithson Productions.
