Digging for Richard III : How Archaeology Found the King Paperback
by MIKE PITTS
Take a cast of archaeologists and historians who inhabit different worlds.
Add a medieval king who died in battle, and was revived by Shakespeare as the ultimate anti-hero.
Throw in a forensic quest with almost unbelievable twists, and a theatrical modern burial with no parallel, and you have the material for an irresistible story for our times.
In the hands of a leading archaeologist and award-winning journalist, the search for a king's grave becomes the page-turning, entertaining, informed narrative that makes Digging for Richard III the must-read title on the most sensational archaeological find for generations.
