Event description

Description

Imagine if we could see and hear King Richard III speaking his own words. What a fantastic and remarkable moment that would be. This lecture explains how that might be more possible than we think.

Richard III was King of England from 1483 until his death in 1485 at the age of 32, in the Battle of Bosworth Field. He was the last king of the House of York and the last of the Plantagenet dynasty. His defeat at Bosworth Field, the last decisive battle in the Wars of the Roses, marked the end of the Middle Ages in England and he is the subject of the fictional historical play by William Shakespeare. The remains of Richard III were discovered in 2012 in Leicester and the archaeological work and analysis has been the subject of three Channel 4 television programmes. Here the internationally acclaimed voice coach Yvonne Morley, who has been the project leader, will explain how her team is in the process of researching how to identify what Richard's voice would have sounded like.
