An obituary

Here is the BBC’s official post about Dr. John Ashdown-Hill, who died last Friday. However, his permanent legacy includes these Powerpoint presentations, originally devised so that he can still educate you about Richard, his life, family and era when he first became unwell enough to do so in person. Alternatively, this is the East Anglian Daily Times’ take.

  1. He contributed so much to all things related to Richard III and most of all perhaps to find, locate (along with others) and identify his remains. He left an enormous legacy and will be missed by so many.
    May he rest in peace!


  2. I still can’t take in the fact that he is dead. I remember speaking to him at Barnard Castle and Middleham a few years ago and he seemed fine. Then last year at Middleham he looked terrible and something was seriously wrong. He was incredibly brave to talk. His loss is incalculable
