  • Mike Pitts – Digging Deeper (Blog): Leicester celebrates its king, by Mike Pitts (May 29, 2014) –

    Mike Pitts shows the state and progress in Leicester and talks with Peter Warzynski (from the Leicester Mercury), who keeps us so well informed about King Richard III. The new King Richard III museum in Leicester is planned to already open in July 2014 !


  • University of Leicester (YouTube): Richard III – The Judicial Review Decision, by UniversityLeicester (May 26, 2014) –

    Condensed report about the press confrence in Leicester Cathedral announcing the High Court decision about the review of the burial license granted to the University of Leicester and disputed by the Plantagenet Alliance.






  • Leicester Mercury: Richard III: High Court ruling to be revealed on Friday, by Peter Warzynski (May 21, 2014) –

    Leicester or York or …
    On Friday (23 May 2014) the decision about the further procedure will be revealed when the decision of the High Court about the Exhumation License will be revealed at 10 a.m.



  • Leicester Mercury: Richard III: MPs in heated debate over final resting place of king’s bones, by Peter Warzynski (May 7, 2014) –

    Parlament needs to stay calm to decide about a procedure for the burial location for King Richard III. As King of England, Richard Plantagenet deserves an event celebrated with dignity and all honours. Though the procedures so far reveal more about our times than about King Richard’s.





  • Die Welt: Richard III., by Die Welt kompakt (April 23, 2014) –

    That Germany sees Shakespeare as one of their own won’t surprise, if one takes into account the influence the famous bard had on German literature. Goethe admired him and set him up on a pedestal, today’s theatre producers play Shakespeare’s work up and down and every current problem will be projected on one of Shakespeare’s plays, if he had intended it that way or not, e.g. gay marriage, modern warfare, holocaust or marriage problems of all kinds. So it is of no great wonder that even “Richard III” gets modern relevance, as shown in this short article by one of Germans leading newspapers and is refered to wherever it gets ‘cold’.


  • Matt Lewis (Blog): Sudeley Castle, April 2014, by Matthew Lewis (April 22, 2014) –

    Sudeley Castle once (or better twice) belonged to Richard Plantagenet, Duke of Gloucester and the later King Richard III. The ruin of parts Richard III let build are still visible. Matt Lewis draws a vivid picture of this historic place and the people who formed and built it.


  • Leicester Mercury: Decision on Richard after holiday (April 18, 2014) –

    High Court closed over Easter, but soon after a decision about the license for the re-burial of King Richard III is expected. Will it be in favour of the University of Leicester, who had started arrangements with Leicester Cathedral or the Plantagenet Alliance, the 15 descendants of King Richard III, who want a re-burial in York Cathedral?


  • Leicester Mercury: Did ghost hunters raise Richard III?, by Peter Warzynski (April 16, 2014) –

    Now King Richard III gets spooky. Does he want to speak with us as well as influence us from the other side to being found?



  • Peterborough Telegraph: Sawtry: History society looks at Richard III (April 14, 2014) –

    Don Chiswell will hold a talk about King Richard III at the Sawtry History Society on Thursday, 17 April 2014, at 7:30 p.m. (WI Hall on Gidding Road in Sawtry).
