A car park-turned-excavation site in Leicester will open to the public today, as archaeologists continue to search for the remains of King Richard III.
Experts from the University of Leicester believe the last Plantagenet king was buried in the city following his death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.
The open event, taking place between 11am and 2pm, has been arranged for visitors to see for themselves the work which is underway in Greyfriars car park in Leicester city centre.
