Come spend a week in England as two popular Denison professors
recreate their magical on-site seminar that compares the science surrounding the recent discovery of Richard III's skeleton with the perception of the legendary monarch presented in history and literature.

Last fall, English Professor Fred Porcheddu '87 and Geosciences Professor David Goodwin team-taught a Denison Seminar course titled "Looking for Richard III." The professors and students actually spent a week in England at key locations related to Richard III and met with the project manager and lead archaeologist on what is called the Greyfriars dig in Leicester. The seminar received rave reviews and generated countless requests that it be replicated. Now, Fred and Dave are offering this same weeklong experience exclusively for alumni, family, and friends of Denison. In addition to the many unique classes, tours, and group activities that are planned, we've designed the itinerary to include some unscheduled time along the way, too, so that you can explore and experience both London and Leicester on your own.
