Presumed skull of King Richard III
Months ago, archeologists working in Leicester, England, found the skeletal remains of a man under a parking lot, in what is now believed to be the location of the Grey Friars Priory. The man in question had grievous wounds to the skull - and scoliosis.
Today, the announcement comes that the remains are those of Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England. The news stories have plenty of photos.
