  • Darlington & Stockton Times: Can new evidence clear the name of Richard III?, by Chris Lloyd (January 8, 2022) –

    Philippa Langley is active again and has a very detailed theory what happened to the nephews of King Richard III. And for once, he is not supposed to have killed them, but rather some historic evidence gives hints at a completely different fate.

  

  • Royal Central: Did Richard III actually save the boy king he’s accused of killing?, by Lydia Starbuck (December 29, 2021) –

    Was King Richard a murderous psychopath or a holier than holy king, who ruled for the benefit of his people? The search for answers occupies historians and researchers and debates are fought heatedly. What a nice change it is, to find new thought-provoking input into this long-lasting debate.
    Philippa Langley, the central figure in finding King Richard III in the carpark in Leicester, has a new theory and clues of what happened to Prince Edward, who would have become King Edward V, if fate had not interfered, and whom King Richard III supposedly had killed.

  • HeritageDaily: Richard III and the Battle of Bosworth – By Mike Ingram (November 1, 2019) –

    How a location can change the perception of past events, that is the result of the extensive research by Mike Ingram about the Battle of Bosworth and the now discovered new location of the battle grounds.
    His new publication “Richard III and the Battle of Bosworth”, just published on October 30th, 2019, draws a completely new picture about the battle itself, how it evolved, but also about the events leading up to it.

  

  • APOLLO.The International Art Magazine: Painted as a villain – how the Tudors regarded Richard III, by Christina J. Faraday (October 8, 2019) –

    A new portrait was revealed for the 567th birthday of King Richard III at Hever Castle. But would he have been happy about this portrait? Christina J.

  • BBC History Extra: 10 things you need to know about the battle of Bosworth, by Chris Skidmore (August 22, 2019) –

    Chris Skidmore is the author of a book “Bosworth: The Birth of the Tudors” (Weidenfeld & Nicholson, 2013).
    He has published this article already in August 2014, but it now was re-published by BBC History Extra and still is very interesting to read.

  

  

  • BBC News: Richard III: Leicester Cathedral £11.3m plans approved, by BBC East Midlands (February 20, 2019) –

  • BBC History Extra: The battle for Bosworth field: Historians react to decision to build on battlefield where Richard III died, by Rachel Dinning (October 4, 2018) –

    Historians Mike Pitts, Matthew Lewis, George Goodwin, Diane Purkiss and Michael Jones give their views about the Battlefield of Bosworth, where King Richard III died in 1485. What knowledge is still to be had from a battlefield, of which the exact location was found out only a few years ago? Would it be worth it to destroy the access to a field exactly at a moment, when technology finally catches up with the historical research about the time and could supplement and extend the knowledge about fighting methods, but also about the society of the time?

  

  • BBC News: Richard III find historian John Ashdown-Hill dies (May 23, 2018) –

    Dr. John Ashdown-Hill, the historian behind the finding of the remains of King Richard III in Leicester, died on 18 May 2018.
    A very sad news for the KingRichardArmitage website, who he kindly supported with interviews and a multitude of valuable information. Just see the various posts and articles we have here on this website: Dr. John Ashdown-Hill – News & Interviews
    A great loss for unbiassed historical research.

I was born on the day that he died and I was named after him, so I feel like I have to […] get into his head, or something.”
