The Bard’s Richard, as played by Richard’s grandfather. . .!

Serial killer? Murdered his nephews? Infamous? Had no children? Oh, well, this New Zealand article does go on to say that the actual Richard had a much better reputation than the Bard saw fit to bestow upon him.

Canterbury Roll

“The Canterbury Roll is the most significant and substantial medieval artefact in New Zealand. For 100 years, UC has been the guardian of this unique 600-year-old treasure, which tells the history of England from its mythical origins to the late Middle Ages….”

The above is a tantalising reference to a roll that promises to reveal some fascinating facts. We hope. It covers the period of the Wars of the Roses and was originally Lancastrian, but fell into Yorkist hands and was, um, adjusted. Whether to point to the truth or tinker with it has yet to be discovered.

Looking forward to its unravelling!
