Medieval CSI

As part of our 'The Science of Richard III' series for Science Week, the Visitor Centre is hosting a series of expert speakers who were each part of the team that analysed the remains of ‘Skeleton 1’. Students will have the chance to hear first-hand about the exciting work that took place behind the scenes. Professor Sarah Hainsworth's talk will cover the analysis of Richard III’s skeleton, the wounds on the skeleton, and how forensic analysis of these marks can suggest which weapons were used
