Ghost Hunting with Richard III


MJ WAYLAND tells us what confirmation of King Richard III's bones in Leicester car park means for ghost hunting in the East Midlands city


Today the media is awash with news that  DNA has confirmed the bones of King Richard III have indeed been discovered under a car park in Leicester. Top paranormal researcher and author MJ WAYLAND tells Spooky Isles what this means for ghost-hunting in the East Midlands city.


Today’s news on the confirmation of the skeleton in the car park belonging to the former monarch, Richard III, has not only brought a massive increase in interest in archaeology but also the other techniques used.  Twitter was alight with #richardiii discussions, jokes and the usual trolling.

Strangely the finding of Richard III in a Leicester car park began with a touch of the esoteric.

Back in August 2009, Philippa Langley, a screenwriter while researching Richard III for a new play was strolling across the car park used by Leicester social services when she felt a “shudder”.

According to The Sunday Times, she said, “It was a hot summer and I had goosebumps so badly and I was freezing cold. I walked past a particular spot and absolutely knew I was walking on his grave.
