PEER INTO THE PLAYBILL

LINE OF QUEENS: MTDNA & RICHARD III

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
Thursday, September 15
10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.


The royal line of Richard III may have died with him on the battlefield, but a succession of female relatives has carried his DNA down to the present day. In this conversation led by Jessica B. Hill (Lady Anne), we will discover how Professor Turi King – leader of the team sequencing Richard III’s genes – was able to identify the last Yorkist king thanks to genealogy and genetics.
