  • The Independent: The Princes in the Tower: Will the ultimate cold case finally be solved after more than 500 years?, by Paul Gallagher (August 21, 2015) –

    Philippa Langley, the leading lady in the search for King Richard III, now continues with her research and diggs into the historical sources about the Princes in the Tower.
    Professional cold case investigators now take over where historians failed for centuries. New, so far closed archives are opened for investigation and material is carried together all over Europe to make the progress of this new research effort interesting to watch.

  

  

  

  • The Independent: A historian gave the most British look of despair when someone screwed up Richard III’s birthday at his reburial, by Christopher Hooton (March 27, 2015) –

    So much effort was undertaken for the re-burial of King Richard III. Still they got King Richard III’s birthday wrong in his eulogy in Leicester Cathedral.
    Here a quite understandable reaction by Dr. John Ashdown-Hill, who did such extensive research about King Richard III and who enabled the finding of the grave, to be embarassed that even such a basic fact about the king was ignored.
    In the debate about the finding of King Richard III, it certainly does not help, that some try to make fun of the historian Dr. John Ashdown-Hill, who did the necessary background research to enable the find. The University of Leicester, pressed into the research, did not find the king. They only provided the research equipment, personnel and know-how for coping with the search results, but not the necessary optimism, the belief, the pre-determined area where to dig and the enormous work to achieve the acceptance by the authorities to allow the dig in those areas that was necessary that the king could be found. Without Dr. John Ashdown-Hill’s pre-research and Philippa Langley, the king would have remaind where he was for over 500 years. To ignore that fact is to ignore the real circumstances of the search.
