Richard III New Face

Ricardian Resources

Part of the Richard III Society


As part of its mission to promote research into the life and times of King Richard III of England, The Richard III Society has published several aids for those researching late medieval and early modern English history. These publications are now out of print or otherwise difficult to obtain, and so the Society has created this website to make digitised versions available online. It is intended to add more digital research resources from the Society as time goes on. We hope that this site will provide useful resources to teachers, researchers and students of medieval history.
