Prior to this major discovery, there had been little new information about Richard III for some time. With no new evidence to fuel it, the debate over what kind of man he might have been seemed to have stalled. Thus the story of the discovery of Richard III is a story of the value of archaeology--careful analysis of physical evidence backed up by the latest science and technology--and how it can change our understanding of history. Firsthand accounts from the team that found the king, along with photographs from the author's own archives and an expanded epilogue incorporating new DNA evidence, augment this compelling detective story as the evidence is uncovered.
