Richard’s portraits and scoliosis….

 

 

While searching for the actor Ben Miller’s association with scoliosis (he had a corrective operation when a child) I came upon the following article, which (I think) he has written. If not, there is another Ben Miller.

The item was written in December 2014, but is full of interest concerning Richard’s portraits, tree-ring dating, the fact that portraits of Richard and Edward IV are from the same tree, and so on. Well worth a read.
