    Dr. King’s work over the years has combined genetics with archaeology, history and geography. Her PhD award-winning research in genetics examined the link between British hereditary surnames and the Y chromosome. She has continued her work on the Y chromosome and surnames, and has been leading a project examining the genetic legacy of the Vikings in the north of England. As well as leading the international research team involved in the DNA identification work of the remains of Richard III, she is also leading the project carrying out the whole genome sequencing of Richard III which is funded by the Wellcome Trust, the Leverhulme Trust and Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys, the inventor of genetic fingerprinting at the University of Leicester.
