Presentation “The Missing Princes Project”

A presentational update on The Missing Princes Project given by Philippa Langley MBE, hosted by the Yorkshire Branch in The Yorkshire Museum, Museum Gardens, Museum Street, York, with support from The Richard III Society.

Entry to the presentation will be by ticket only.

£5 per head for a Member of the Richard III Society or a Branch or Group thereof.

£10 per head for non-members.

Tickets available from September onwards, only from the Yorkshire Branch via the 'Contact Us' section of this website.

Philippa Langley took the world by storm when she led the search and discovery of Richard III’s body. Now, she has turned her attention to the fate of the Princes in the Tower – a mystery that has divided opinion for over 500 years.

Following years of intensive research by Philippa and her international team, she will present the findings of ‘The Missing Princes Project’. Using investigative methodology, it places this most enduring of mysteries under a forensic microscope for the first time, unearthing new archival discoveries along the way.
