This Richard III-themed cake was baked by distance-learning student Angela Parker for a talk by Mathew Morris (site supervisor of the recent Grey Friars excavation) for the Research Seminar Series of the University of Leicester’s School of Archaeology & Ancient History. It is actually a quadruple cake, with each quarter different in flavour: chocolate, Victoria sponge, coffee, and lemon and lime. More than 130 people came to the talk, so it is lucky Angela made it so big!
Our seminars are open to all and get a good local turnout. You can find out more at: www2.le.ac.uk/departments/archaeology/research/seminars.
