Richard III reconstruction to go on show in York

A reconstruction of the head of Richard III

A reconstruction of the head of Richard III will go on show at the Yorkshire Museum this summer.

The replica head – made using detailed scans of the king’s skull – will take pride of place in a new display looking at what is really known about the last Yorkist monarch.

Last week relatives of Richard III launched a legal challenge over plans to bury him in Leicester Cathedral.
