Co-authored by the founding members of the Looking for Richard Project, Dr. John Ashdown-Hill, Dr David and Wendy Johnson, Annette Carson and Philippa Langley, Finding Richard III: The Official Account of Research by the Retrieval and Reburial Project covers not only the archaeological dig that led to the rediscovery of his remains, but the years of previous work that inspired the search. Rediscovering the actual location of Richard’s grave has been a source of interest for Ricardians for decades, and Finding Richard III examines both the near-contemporary accounts such as John Rous and Polydore Vergil and previous modern studies by Ricardians Audrey Strange and Rhoda Edwards. A study of Richard’s original tomb discusses payments made for the construction of the tomb, some early descriptions of it and how it succumbed to the elements after the Greyfriars church was destroyed during the Dissolution. A look at Leicester residents historian David Baldwin and Ken Wright’s attempts to persuade people that the River Soar theory was a myth is certainly interesting, even more interesting is how the myth actually took hold. Dr. John Ashdown-Hill’s genealogical research and discovery of the mtDNA sequence of King Richard III that was crucial in identifying Richard III’s remains is discussed, and a thorough outline of the work in securing the fund-raising and services for the archaeological dig and the costs of the dig itself. A postscript touches on various important events since Richard III was disinterred. The appendices include the Epitaph on Richard’s original tomb, an Archaeological Dig Cost Breakdown, the original pamphlet for an urgent appeal for pledges to the Greyfriars Project and an honour roll of those who donated to the appeal. And then there are the long-awaited documents pertaining to the original agreements between Looking for Richard Project, Leicester City Council and the University of Leicester Archaeological Services.
