Human Remains Found in Search for King Richard III's Grave
A hunt for the grave of King Richard III has turned up human remains at the medieval church where the English monarch is said to be buried ? but there is no word yet on whether the remains belong to the king.
University of Leicester archaeologists will announce the details of the new findings tomorrow (Sept. 12). Until then, the researchers are remaining tight-lipped about the find.
Archaeologists began excavating the parking lot of the Leicester City Council on Aug. 25 in search of a medieval Franciscan friary known as Greyfriars. The location of the church had been lost, but historical records hold that Richard III, the last English king to die in battle, was laid to rest there in 1485.
