King Richard III died ingloriously on an English battlefield in 1485. In 2012-13, an extraordinary archaeological project discovered his body beneath a car park in Leicester. Professor Foxhall discusses the fascinating intersections of archaeological science, history, literature, and British politics surrounding the find.
