Archaeologists seeking to raise £10,000 to search for lost grave of Richard III

Philippa Langley on behalf of the Archaeological Search for Richard III, is asking for pledges in order to raise £10,000 for a dig to search for the lost grave of Richard III.  She writes:

An archaeological dig is scheduled to take place this summer in Leicester, seeking the last resting place of Richard III, and hoping to find and re-inter his remains with proper solemnity. In addition it is hoped the excavations will be filmed, and then form part of a proposed landmark TV special telling Richard’s real story.

We are appealing to you today because the project dig has encountered a sudden and unforeseen shortfall of £10,000. We are desperately trying to raise this sum and avert the closing down of the dig – that’s why we are appealing URGENTLY for pledges of funds. Any amounts are welcome, whether large or small, whether from individuals or group collections. Please don’t send any money yet – we simply need your pledge by Friday 20 July, 2012.

Please email info@philly.co.uk as soon as possible, and we’ll email you our appeal leaflet with full information.
