Dig Deeper is a series of fringe events designed to complement the main performance of Richard III

This talk will be delivered by Dr Anne Marie D’Arcy.

Dr Anne Marie D’Arcy specialises in later Medieval and early Renaissance texts and their contexts, focussing on the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Her research interests lie in the areas of medieval and Renaissance Wisdom literature, medieval and Renaissance iconology and political theology. Her book, Wisdom and the Grail: The Image of the Vessel in the Queste del Saint Graal and Malory’s Tale of the Sankgreal (2000), provides an iconological reading of the sources of Malory’s Morte Darthur: a text closely associated with several pivotal figures during the reign of Richard III, which also reflects the political concerns of the War of the Roses.

*These events cannot be booked online and are only available to people who have booked to see a performance of Richard III.
