Was Richard III all bad – and what were his links with the city that loved him?

These questions are likely to crop up as City of York Council’s archaeologist John Oxley leads a second series of free walks retracing Richard III’s steps around York.

The walks were fully booked when first run last autumn and return due to popular demand.

Part of York’s Richard III: Rumour and Reality project, John wrote a piece for YorkMix about the king’s links with the city ahead of the previous walking tours.
