About Matt Morris

Matt Morris graduated from Leicester University in 2003 with a BA in Archaeology and an MA in Landscape Studies. Since then, he has been involved in numerous projects, digs, and excavations.

Most notably, in 2012 he led excavations looking at the medieval St John’s Hospital in Leicester, a late Roman cemetery just outside Leicester and the Greyfriars Project. This project was the archaeological search for the last known resting place of Richard III.
