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.

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.

Meeting Indiana Jones Again

On October 10, 2012, we fetched our Australian friend, Rupert Mann from the Islamic Arts Museum.

Like Indiana Jones, Rupert is an archaeologist and wears a hat too.

I wore the hat that he gave me during his last trip to Malaysia in February 2012, and I was very happy because he wore the same hat too 🙂

It was really fun talking to him again after 8 months since we last met.

He gave us lots of beautiful stamps from all around the world.

We were looking at the beautiful stamps.

He flew to Kuala Lumpur on his way to Kathmandu, Nepal for a hiking trip.

We went to a frozen yoghurt shop, Tutti Frutti which served very tasty frozen yogurt with all kinds of toppings.

I really enjoyed talking to Rupert and he is really fun to be with.

Everybody in my family really like Rupert because he is a wonderful and nice friend.

Rupert is very polite and very wise too.

I gave him the book that I wrote, titled, ‘The Calovinia’ and I hope that he’ll enjoy the book.

I love meeting him and I really hope to meet him again soon.
