As reported previously the next triennial conference of the Richard III Society will be taking place next year.  Now the full programme is available and it sounds truly exciting.

It will be held at Burleigh Court, Loughborough, from 20 to 22 April 2012.  The theme is “all about new discoveries and new thinking: from the discovery of the new site of Bosworth and the war graves of Towton to new thinking about battle records, armour and weapons.”  The five speakers are experts at the forefront of their fields.  One of them is Professor Anne Curry, who will explore the representation of battles in contemporary records.  Prof Curry was one of the speakers at the ‘Blood and Roses’ conference in Oxford and a lively and fascinating speaker.

On the Saturday afternoon there will be an optional guided visit to Bosworth and the battle-field centre, which sounds too good to be missed.

You can find the full details and the application form on the website of the Richard III Society in the ‘What’s New’ section.

I know that one of our branch members is planning to attend and we are all looking forward to hearing everything about her experience.  And the good news for the rest of us is that there should be another triennial conference in 2015!
