The nicest comments I've heard from Ricardian sites are "stark" and "minimalist". What I can't understand is why did Leicester Cathedral spend money to commission a tomb design when Philippa Langely had already done so and had raised all the money to pay for it? Looking For Richard - The Tomb Design The design is beautiful, not over the top, and dignified, containing symbols and mottoes that meant something to Richard. And did I mention paid for?

Well, the exhibition has apparently followed the U of L party line and has minimized or completely removed the contributions of the Looking for Richard Project and the Richard III Society in locating the King. Annette Carson of LFR has posted this on her blog: http://www.annettecarson.co.uk/35705...ntre-leicester

This is absolutely ridiculous!!! Never have I seen a picture of a Medieval armour painted white. They didn't paint them. The only thing they did was treat the armour to make it blueish/blacking, if the owner so ordered.
I wonder if the paints they had at the time (made of egg-tempera & and early oilpaints) would have held on the metal.
I will ask my Living History friends.
