About this event

The body of Kind Richard III has recently been discovered in a car park in Leicester. This was an archaeological find, but tools from modern forensic pathology and forensic engineering science have been used to evaluate the wounds on the skeleton and to determine how the King died.  This talk will discuss how our research into the forces involved in stabbing and the micro-computed tomography and microscopy tools that are used in modern cases of dismemberment have been applied to the skeleton of Richard III to relate the wounds on the skeleton to weapons used on the late mediaeval/early modern battlefield.
