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.

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."
