How Was Richard’s Skeleton Identified?

How was Richard’s skeleton identified?

This complex analysis has been simplified into a murder investigation by Kirsty Reade, a graduate of forensic science, who has developed this with her KS3 classes at a school in Leicestershire.

This exercise could be used as an introduction to the life and times of King Richard III before starting any of the other KS3 projects.

A detailed lesson plan is provided as a Word download with an associated set of PowerPoint slides which explain the group task.
