Mathew was also the Site Director on the Grey Friars Dig in Leicester which famously discovered the final resting place of Richard III. This talk will focus on the second part of the dig which unearthed the lead tomb which contained a stone coffin. Expecting a medieval knight or a leading Franciscan, the team were surprised to find a high status medieval lady. Who was she?
