The Final Resting Place of King Richard III

Very interesting news about the final resting place of Richard III. The king of course appears in The Sorcerer's Letterbox, based on the well-known mystery of the Princes in the Tower

A skeleton found beneath a Leicester car park has been confirmed as that of English king Richard III. Experts from the University of Leicester said DNA from the bones matched that of descendants of the monarch's family. Lead archaeologist Richard Buckley, from the University of Leicester, told a press conference to applause: "Beyond reasonable doubt it's Richard." Richard, killed in battle in 1485, will be reinterred in Leicester Cathedral.

You can check out  the full story here on the BBC website.
