Same etomology as "Elizabethan," "Georgian" or "Jacobean". Ricardians are those who study the life and times of Richard (in this case RIII).

King Richard III will be reburied at Leicester Cathedral | Royal | News | Daily Express



Royal Arms of Richard III


Funeral service for King Richard III and reburial at Leicester Cathedral

THE body of King Richard III will be reburied at Leicester Cathedral in March 2015.
A reinterment service will take place at the cathedral on March 26 following a week of events in Leicestershire to honour the monarch.


Sunday 22 March 2015

The remains will be transferred into a lead-lined coffin at Leicester University and will travel by hearse to Bosworth for a day of events marking the king's final movements. The journey will see the hearse travel through villages that were significant to the monarch's final days ahead of a service in Bosworth.

The coffin will then return to Leicester Cathedral in the early evening where a service of reception will be attended by guests invited by David Monteith, the Dean of Leicester.


Monday 23 to Wednesday 25 March

The monarch's remains will then lie in repose, his coffin covered with a commissioned pall, for three days to allow for members of the public to pay their respects.


Thursday 26 March

§ The reinterment service, which will also be invite only, will take place.

§ The service will be broadcast live on Channel 4.


Friday 27 and Saturday 28 March

A series of commemorative events and activities will take place.


The Bishop of Leicester, the Rt Revd Tim Stevens said: "Our cathedral has been consistently committed to providing a fitting, dignified and memorable ceremony for the reinterment of King Richard. "We can now see how this works out in detail and our city and county look forward to all the events of next spring."

Richard III: The New Evidence- Tonight- 9pm BST: Channel 4-
"In a world exclusive in February 2013, Channel 4 broadcast a film that followed the extraordinary hunt for Richard III: the king discovered, against all the odds, under a car park in Leicester.

Since then, for the first time, scientists have been able to subject the skeleton of an English king to intense scrutiny and analysis, allowing them to reassemble his life in fascinating detail.

Using the latest scientific techniques, experts at the University of Leicester and beyond have been able to work out the extent to which his potentially extreme spinal deformity would have affected his ability to be the warrior king famed for leading the charge at the Battle of Bosworth.

They have also pieced together his diet and revealed his lifestyle in his final years, with surprising results.

The scientists have been helped in their investigations by a living body double who volunteered to test their theories via practical experiments and reconstructions.

Dominic Smee, who suffers from the same form of scoliosis as Richard III and whose spine, with its 75-degree spinal curve, is deemed 'virtually identical' by the experts, agreed to collaborate with the scientists on a unique intensive physical programme to see how Richard's scoliosis would have affected his ability to wield a sword, wear armour, ride a horse and use a lance-"

Several of my re-enactorfriends helped filming this. They are very curious if they made it do the final cut. Given the level authenticity (or rather lack thereof) of the things concerning RIII, they probably will not. :-(

I watched the documentary last night and found it quite interesting. Richard III's scoliosis was very extreme - at first I didn't think he would have been able to go into battle because of it, although when Mr. Smee was tested on various gym equipment, he was able to do most of it and had better results in some than those without scoliosis. The only thing he had difficulties with was the treadmill.

It's hardly surprising that Richard's diet changed the last two years of his life: he went from being a constanly-on-the-move representative of his brother to His Grace The King, with all the banquets, receptions, progresses etc. that that entailed. Even with the new diet, however, contemporary descriptions of Richard emphasize how slender he was and several mention that he actually ate and drank very little, even at official functions.

I like how Matthew Morris, the project's site manager, remarked:

'Of all things that have happened in the last two years seeing all those journalistic and television crews was something to behold.'

Congratulations to Mr. Morris for his historic discovery!

More to the point, congratulations to Philippa Langley, Dr. John Ashdown-Hill, Annette Carson and the entire Looking for Richard project team who funded the dig, hired the archaeologists and told them exactly where to dig (down to the square meter!) even though the "professionals" believed Richard was in the River Soar and would never be found.

I still think Richard should be buried in York; that was the place he loved and is most associated with. But I guess it's settled now. I'm glad he'll finally get a decent burial, anyway.

I agree with you, but the decision has been made and at least he'll finally be laid to rest in peace and with dignity and honor.

And now a very bad pun, which I cannot resist. Look away if you must.
That's Breaking News on the BBC.
