University of Leicester’s Richard III Open Day will provide a host of public activities on Saturday 29 June

The University will be throwing open its doors to the public for an exciting programme of events to celebrate the discovery of King Richard III.

Highlights from its Richard III Open Day on Saturday 29 June include talks from experts Professor Lin Foxhall, Head of our School of Archaeology and Ancient History, geneticist Dr Turi King, forensic engineering expert Professor Sarah Hainsworth, Renaissance literature scholar Dr Sarah Knight, and Dr Tracey Elliott of the School of Law.

There will also be drop-in sessions to the Department of Genetics and School of Archaeology and Ancient History, where guests will be able to participate in workshops, displays and demos.

The events are also part of this year’s Summer Reunion Open Day, held annually for graduates of the University both across the UK and worldwide.
