The NSW Branch of the Richard III Society wishes to congratulate Dr John Ashdown-Hill, a key member of the Looking for Richard project, to being elected as a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society recently.

This announcement takes a well-deserved front page spot of the website of the Richard III Society.

John’s research was instrumental in establishing where Richard was buried and that his remains had not been thrown into the river Soar during the Reformation, the probable lay-out of the Greyfriars in Leicester and of course in establishing Richard’s mtDNA.

John explained his research at the conference on 2 March 2013 in Leicester, an unforgettable experience for many of us.  If you could not be there in person, or would like to listen to John’s presentation again, you can do so here.
