After a year long investigation, including a number of different disciplines from areas such as archeology, geneology and medical, it was finally confirmed that a body found buried in a carpark in Leicester, England was indeed Richard the third. For this episode I catch up with Michael Stutchbery and talk about why this caused as much excitement as it did, and why it's so important.
