NEW DVD JUST COME IN!
When a skeleton was found under a Leicester car park in September 2012, the news broke around the world. Research began, involving dozens of specialists in the fields of archaeology, osteology, history, forensic pathology, genealogy and DNA analysis, could this skeleton be the remains, lost for 500 years, of England’s most infamous king?
Philippa Langley, an Edinburgh based screenwriter and secretary of the Scottish Branch of the Richard III Society, was the main advocator of the project, and together with the University of Leicester, they embarked on a journey to discover the medieval monarch’s lost bones.
Presented by Simon Farnaby, ‘Richard III: The King in The Car Park’ tells every step, twist and turn of the story. It unveils a brand new facial reconstruction made from the skull and reveals the results of the final tests that confirm or deny the body’s identity.
Additionally, ‘The Unseen Story’ features exclusive footage of the dig, forensic tests and fresh interviews with the lead scientists, piercing together the critical steps in the archaelogical excavation. We see how the Greyfriars Church was uncovered and witness the painstaking exhumation of the lost King’s grave from the first indications of human remains to the exposure of the body’s twisted spine revealing a new dimension to the hunt for England’s long-lost king.

Christian Resources Leicester has just celebrated producing it’s 10,000th Invoice.
When one of our customers, Rev Alison Christian walked into our shop this week, she had no idea that we would be taking her picture and giving her some freebies. She came in to buy some church candles… she left holding some free gifts and a beaming smile across her face, as you can see from our photo.
Alison Christian (real name!) is not only our 10,000th Invoice Holder, but she also happens to be the newly appointed warden at the Leicester Diocese Retreat House, Launde Abbey. She has been a parish priest in London for the last 20 years and now comes to her new job with a vision to help people to pray “because in prayer we experience a direct and personal relationship with God” (her words).
If you want to know more about Launde Abbey and the beautiful grounds it’s set in, have a look at their website, where you can see more about all the great events and retreats they have going on.
Because Alison had an account with us, she also gained 10% discount on her candles. If you would like to know more about having an account with us, just give us a call on 0116 2615222 or read more here on our website.
