Burying the King

THE day began dull and damp. The streets of Leicester were washed with rain, and gusts of wind whipped vestments and caused hats to be firmly clasped to the head. But the weather proved to match the dynamic of a service that was first solemn, and then joyful and uplifting.
 Richard III's burial, 500 years late.


  1. Coincidence: I'm rereading Josephine Tey's Daughter of Time this week. Poor Richard. So misunderstood. Blame More and Shakespeare.

  2. That is a great book R.T. It told a great story, and her skill in keeping the narrative moving was really impressive.
