Necessary steps to prepare the search:

  • Find proof that King Richard III indeed was buried by the Franciscan friars in their church Greyfriars in Leicester.
  •  

  • Prove that the legend that King Richard III’s body was dug up and thrown in the river Soar was false.
  •  

  • Reconstruct a reliable map and layout of the Greyfriars’ area in Leicester.
  •  

  • Find and publicise the mtDNA sequence for King Richard III, so that the search could have a confirmation reference.

 

All these essential points for the search were done by one man,
Dr. John Ashdown-Hill.
