Dear Members,

Research blog launched

The Research Committee have set up a blog to help share knowledge of recent research into the life and times of Richard III. It is for both Ricardians and anyone interested in the fifteenth century. The blog can be found at https://riiiresearch.blogspot.co.uk/. The first post (“Buried Treasures”) relates to the burials of Richard’s siblings at Fotheringhay church as well as to one of Cecily duchess of York’s books, and the latest post – “The Myth of Joan of York”
