Progress so far
At the moment we are putting the pieces of bone and teeth, collected from Richard III, through various chemical extraction procedures. This will purify the elements in which we are interested so that we can examine Richard’s diet over his lifetime; where he resided and may have travelled; and enable us to look at the environment in which a Medieval King was raised.
More to come....watch this space for updates on the progress of the laboratory work.
