After a delivery to clients in London, Hispanic Antiques paid a long overdue visit to Leicester Cathedral to see the tomb of Richard III . The last of the Plantagenets and the last English king to die on the battlefield at Bosworth, Richard is a controversial figure who evokes strong feelings amongst people. The discovery of the body under a council car park in Leicester is one of the great historical stories of the 21st century and the conviction of the Ricardians who made it happen has to be admired. I have to say the modern tomb in the cathedral is both fitting and extremely moving and would advise people to visit both that and the Richard III visitor centre. The top stone comes from Swaledale, Yorkshire an area he would have once owned near Middleham whilst the darker plinth is from Kilkenny , Ireland
