A skeleton found beneath a Leicester car park has been confirmed as that of English king Richard III.
The skeleton was found beneath a Leicester car park

[snip] Experts from the University of Leicester said DNA from the bones matched that of descendants of the monarch's family.
His skeleton had suffered 10 injuries, including eight to the skull, at around the time of death. Two of the skull wounds were potentially fatal.
One was a "slice" removing a flap of bone, the other was caused by bladed weapon which went through and hit the opposite side of the skull - a depth of more than 10cm (4ins).

[snip] Without the scoliosis, which experts believe developed during teenage years, he would have been about 5ft 8ins (1.7m) tall, but the curvature would have made him appear "considerably" shorter.

I don't recall if the article said, but King Richard was killed in one battle in the War of the Roses.

The Battle of Bosworth (or Bosworth Field) was the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York that raged across England in the latter half of the 15th century. Fought on 22 August 1485, the battle was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, by his victory became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty. His opponent, Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle. Source: Wikipedia

I though this sounded like a lot of nonsense when the started digging. Finding bones on the site of a church demolished nearly 500 years ago. However, they found a very Richie looking skeleton on the first day of digging, which is quite impressive

Posting this link to with a video on the page , dont know if in the USA you will be able to see it but if you can; it should be more interesting for you than just reading about the find.

The problem has arisen because exhumation of the body was only granted under the condition it would be re buried by August 2013 in the or near the place where it was discovered. So , Leicester want it in there Cathedral which is about 500 mt up the road.
If you listen to the video on the BBC link it explains the other bones of contempt. ( sorry for the pun)

does anyone know if his body has been reburied?
Maybe somewhere more fitting for a King?

It has to be re buried by August 2013, hence the controversy if you scroll up and read :)

Yes, I agree 100%. Words of wisdom.

So many threads , so many to look at , read and ponder.

What makes Worthy great is that it unites us , brings us close together on a common ground , Jesus!
A Ministry.

Yet we can fellowship together on threads like this and share our thoughts; no anger, no drama,
just pure information shared and enjoyed by those that participate and have a common interest in the subject.

Thank you "Yank" ( :help: ) for starting for what, some of us think is an interesting topic. :thumbsup:
