We are delighted to welcome prize-winning author Stuart Hill here to sign copies of his book for younger readers, I Was There...Richard III as part of a free day of family-friendly activities celebrating the University of Leicester’s research, discovery and identification of Richard III.

The Year is 1464 and a 12 year old Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is under the protection of the Earl of Warwick at Middleham Castle in Yorkshire. Here, he is immersed in knights' training, and along with his friend Francis Lovell, the boys yearn for their first experience of battle. Richard is thrilled to discover they are to ride with the Yorkist army, to Hexham, where they expect to meet Lancastrian opposition. How close can they get to their first blooding for the Yorkist cause, as the Wars of the Roses rages around them?
