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. 

Here are some links:-

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

  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.
