    Abstract from the speakers

    Turi King:
    King Richard III: the resolution of a 500 year old cold case. When the University of Leicester Archaeology Service undertook the Grey Friars project, it was thought that the chances of finding the remains of Richard III were slim to none. Nevertheless, Turi King, with her background both in archaeology and genetics, was approached in the very early stages – should the skeletal remains of a ‘good candidate’ to be Richard III be found, would she be interested in overseeing the DNA analysis. Turi King will speak about the Grey Friars project, from the early stages of planning the dig, through to the excavation and the results of the various strands of analysis carried out on the remains.


    Copenhagen Bioscience Snapshot’ is a seminar started by CPH Bioscience PhD students in 2019, and supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. Check our seminars page for details of past and planned events.
