  • The recent excitement surrounding the discovery of Richard III (now, alas, forever to be known as the ‘king in the car park') has rekindled the enthusiasm I had, as a history teacher, to find out what we have done with our other kings.You may think we have them all safely at Westminster or Windsor,but it isn't so: we have been pretty careless. Some are lost, some have been mauled about and at least five are abroad. So this lecture is a sort of quest, a monarch-hunt which, since this is the Arts Society, will concentrate of course on: Architecture (splendid), Sculpture (astonishing), Painting (jewel-like), with a little bit of history (odd, mostly) for excitement. Those of a nervous disposition will be relieved to hear that it's not gruesome... well, not very.
