Internship with archeologists to excavate King Richard III site


In August 2012, the University of Leicester in collaboration with the Richard III Society and Leicester City Council, began one of the most ambitious archaeological projects ever attempted: no less than a search for the lost grave of King Richard III.

In July 2013, the team from University of Leicester Archaeological Services will return to that famous car park to unearth more of the Greyfriars church and learn more about Medieval Leicester.

The team at the University of Leicester are inviting year 12 pupils fin the UK to apply for the two month paid opportunity to work with them as they search for further buried ´treasures´.

The successful candidate who will receive a £1,000 bursary will be taught key archaeological skills and processes and maybe make some discoveries of their own.

The application deadline is midnight 23rd June, for more information see the university website.
