The tenth anniversary of the Looking for Richard Project #RichardIII

Yesterday the Richard III Society posted the following on Facebook.

“Ten years ago today, on 21st February 2009 at the Cramond Inn in Edinburgh, the Looking for Richard Project began. Thanks to the tireless work and tenacity of the amazing Philippa Langley, aided, of course, by other founder members Annette Carson, Dr David and Wendy Johnson, and the much missed Dr John Ashdown-Hill, Richard was finally found. Thank you!”

What a momentous occasion that was, and what an incredible group of people.

Without them King Richard would probably never have been found. (And almost certainly not within the brief window of opportunity for confirming his DNA…)
Also, without them, my books about King Richard might never have been written, so I owe them a personal debt of gratitude. Not for nothing are they the dedicatees of ‘The Order of the White Boar‘.
So very many thanks to them all
