One year on Richard III reinterment

It has been a year to the day since the mortal remains of Richard III, the last Plantagenet king, left the University of Leicester after 931 days of being under the University's custody - 142 days longer than his reign as King of England.

Today marks the start of the one year anniversary week of the reinterment of Richard III.

To mark the occasion: a web portal has been launched featuring multimedia resources chronicling the discovery; a new 2-minute video produced by the University of Leicester chronicles the discovery of Richard III from beginning to end; and an image showing Richard III’s spine provides a timeline of significant dates spanning the discovery and reinterment of Richard III.

Below you can find additional content from the University of Leicester marking the one year anniversary:

Throughout the city of Leicester a number of events will be taking place as part of the Richard Reburied Revisited celebrations between Saturday 26 March - Friday 1 April. A list of events can be found here.
