The Ricardian and June Ricardian Bulletin should find their way into your letter box these days – if you are a member of the Society that is.
This Bulletin is a bumper issue with 88 pages of fascinating information. It has all the regular features, an extended research section with the first regular update about the Ricardian Chronicle project, plus in depth press and media coverage.
There is a feature on scoliosis and what it means for people living with the condition. Some of these questions are addressed, with contributions from the Scoliosis Association UK and from members sharing their own experience of scoliosis.
For ‘The Man Himself’ Peter Hammond writes about Richard III’s diet in light of the examination of the king’s remains. There’s also a contribution from Annette Carson reflecting on the impact and outcome of the Greyfriars dig and Stephen York takes a look at Kingmaker, a board game with a Wars of the Roses theme.
The Ricardian offers a variety of research articles and book reviews. Seeing how volatile the weather has become with climate change, the examination of “Richard III, Bridges and Floods” sounds very interesting. Other articles looks at the Order of the Garter, Bosworth, Scottish women and a friar.
