You can learn about the intriguing death of Richard III with an event at Dudley Museum and Art Gallery later this month.
The talk will focus on new theories about the Battle of Bosworth, how these ideas could have a bearing on the death of the king and will also look at the kinds of weapons which might have brought about Richard’s end.
Given by exhibition officer Adrian Durkin, the talk will take place at 2pm on 22 August - the 628th anniversary of the Battle of Bosworth.
Using the recent evidence uncovered by the discovery of Richard’s body under a car park in Leicester, participants will be able to handle artefacts in order to draw their own conclusions about Richard’s life and death in a one hour talk.
Admission to the event is free of charge but spaces on the talk are limited and people are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
Dudley Museum and Art Gallery is in St. James's Road, Dudley (01384 815575). It is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm, all year except for Bank Holidays, and admission is free.
