An interactive 3D tour of Richard’s place in that car park….

completed tomb

The Ricardian news today is in a great many national newspapers, and concerns a 3D interactive exploration of Richard’s resting place – the car park, not the cathedral. I don’t know how many of you would wish to see this, but I don’t, because it’s too sad to be reminded of what happened to him. At the same time, I should not forget that if it were not for this amazing discovery, we would not have him back with us again today.

  1. It just dawned on me that Henry Tydder had Richard buried at a site in Leicester that would prevent anyone from making a pilgrimage to the king’s grave. Now, 500 years on, Richard has a glowing new tomb, and people are making pilgrimages to see the king’s grave. So methinks Richard has had the final word — and irony — there.

    I’d love to know how many people make pilgrimages to Westminster Abbey specifically to see Harry’s tomb. I certainly didn’t.
