Philippa Langley MBE is an historian and award-winning producer, best known for her role in the discovery and reburial of Richard III in 2012. She will give a talk on The Princes in the Tower – Solving History’s Greatest Cold Case.
Philippa Langley took the world by storm when, against all the odds, she led the search and discovery of Richard III’s body. The rediscovery and reburial of Richard III was watched by an estimated global audience of over 366 million. Now, she has turned her attention to the fate of the Princes in the Tower – a mystery that has held us in raptures and divided opinion for over 500 years.
Following years of intensive research by Langley and her international team, the book reveals the findings of ‘The Missing Princes Project’. Using investigative methodology, it places this most enduring of mysteries under a forensic microscope, unearthing astonishing new archival discoveries along the way. It is the first time that police cold case investigation analysis has been applied to a centuries-old historical mystery, leaving no stone unturned, and the results are extraordinary.
The Princes in the Tower is published to coincide with a landmark 90-minute documentary on Channel 4 with Philippa Langley and Rob Rinder.
