Remains of King Richard III Found?

Archaeologist Mathew Morris stands in the trench where he found skeleton remains during an archaeological dig to find the remains of King Richard III in Leicester, central England September 12, 2012. A 500-year-old mystery of where England’s King Richard III was buried after his death in battle may finally be about to be solved after archaeologists found bones beneath a city centre parking lot. A team from the University of Leicester are excavating where a Franciscan friary known as Greyfriars may house the monarch’s remains after he died at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 – the last English king to die in battle.

On September 12, 2012 researchers had made an announcement that the human skeleton with a cleaved skull discovered beneath a parking lot in England may belong to King Richard III of England.

King Richard III (2 October 1452 – 22 August 1485) died during the Battle of Bosworth Field.

He was the last English king to die in battle.

Anyway researchers still have a long way to go in analyzing the bones to determine if  the bones are really the remains of King Richard III.
