Death of a King

Pathologist Dr Suzy Lishman demonstrates how an autopsy identified the remains of Richard III and what a modern-day post mortem examination might have uncovered.

The remains of Richard III were discovered in a Leicester car park in 2012 and recently reinterred in Leicester Cathedral. Forensic tests identified the body as Richard's 'beyond reasonable doubt'.

Join award-winning pathologist Dr Suzy Lishman to learn more about how this conclusion was reached and discover what a modern-day post mortem examination might have uncovered. With the help of a live model, Dr Lishman will explore what Richard's body might tell us about how he lived and died.
