Remains of King Richard III Found?

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.

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.
