This unique event will provide students with an interest in History, Politics, English or Archaeology, an opportunity to act as detectives and use academic sources and historical documents to decide who killed the ‘Princes in the Tower’… Richard III or Henry VI? The event will culminate in a debate wherein students will have to persuade a jury of academics who was guilty of this crime in our debating chamber in our law department. Pupils will be given dozens of online and printed resources to examine and work in groups to make their case as to who was guilty of these murders.. Resources prepared by one of History Lecturers at the University. Through this work they will gain an insight into how historians do the act of researching history.
