Checking the trenches at Grey Friars.

The University of Leicester is offering an internship for a Year 12 student to work on a second excavation of the Grey Friars site in Leicester where the remains of the medieval king were uncovered in September 2012.

The successful candidate will work with University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) team members Richard Buckley and Mathew Morris throughout July.

As part of the month-long paid post, the intern will learn key archaeological skills and processes and will have the chance to make new discoveries in the remnants of the Grey Friars church.

The University will be looking for candidates who are interested in studying archaeology after they finish their A-levels or equivalent studies. All entrants will be invited to the dig site to meet Richard Buckley and the search team - regardless of whether they secure the internship. The closing date for applications is Sunday 23 June 201

There will also be an internship available for current University of Leicester Archaeology undergraduates.

  • The Search for Richard III was led by the University of Leicester, working with Leicester City Council, and in association with the Richard III Society.
