Presented in partnership with the Folger Shakespeare Library and St. Louis University, the British Council will host geneticist Turi King and fieldwork director Mathew Morris.

For centuries, archaeologists searched for his remains. In September 2012, King Richard III’s body was found in the most unlikeliest of places – a car park in Leicester, UK.

From the Greyfriars Project, geneticist Turi King and fieldwork director Mathew Morris will give a lecture on the archaeological dig and verification of the Richard III’s remains.

Join us as Dr. King and Dr. Morris tell the fascinating story of one of the greatest archaeological finds since the discovery of King Tutankhamen in 1922.
