The Whereabouts of Richard III’s Remains – as Reported in the ‘Leeds Mercury’ of Saturday 17 September, 1825

Posted on February 7th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

We’re fair interested in the Richard III news story that is being reported at the moment.

Mike Plant, a visitor to the Archive, has suggested that the researchers might have saved themselves some time if they had first looked for Richard III in the BNA.

So thanks to Mike, here’s a story from the ‘Leeds Mercury’ of Saturday 17 September 1825, which provides details of where Richard III was buried.

‘A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse!’ – hmm, we do wonder if this is a delightful “shaggy horse’s tale”…
