Richard III: Peterborough’s Medieval Monarch?
Good King Richard or monster? Richard remains one of England’s most enigmatic and controversial Kings. Was he the monster depicted in Shakespeare’s play or a victim of Tudor Propaganda? The truth, like the man is perhaps more complex and interesting, and what’s more he was born just outside Peterborough!

A prolific speaker formerly operations manager at Peterborough Cathedral, curator at Peterborough Museum, lead officer for Peterborough’s Heritage Festival.
