In August 2012, the University of Leicester began one of the most ambitious archaeological projects ever attempted: no less than a search for the lost grave of King Richard III, the last English king to die in battle. Dr Turi King became deeply involved in the genetic work on the remains, comparing the DNA with that of known female-line relatives to look for a match. In her Hoboken Lecture Dr King will speak about the Richard III case from how it started through to the excavation and the scientific analysis which led to the identification of his remains, and the possible connections between individuals born five centuries - and many generations - later than Richard.
Introduction of the speaker and her topic by Manfred Kayser, Professor of Forensic Molecular Biology, Department of Genetic Identification, Erasmus MC.
Target audience: English speakers who are interested in science
