For a note on the website King Richard Armitage: Support Network for the Film 'Richard III' says:
An archaeological dig is scheduled to take place this summer in Leicester, seeking the last resting place of Richard III, and hoping to find and re-inter his remains with proper solemnity. In addition it is hoped the excavations will be filmed, and then form part of a proposed landmark TV special telling Richard’s real story.
We are appealing to you today because the project dig has encountered a sudden and unforeseen shortfall of £10,000. We are desperately trying to raise this sum and avert the closing down of the dig – that’s why we are appealing URGENTLY for pledges.Should you feel moved you can pledge funds to the dig online, though I had better emphasise that I know nothing about the people behind this project.
Still, they do have some useful resources on the death of Richard III on their site.
