According to The Daily Telegraph, the bones found in Leicester car park are Richard III’s. The information, according to the article, is being withheld pending a documentary about the dig. This, if true, is exciting news. I’ve posted the link below. I hope it works.

There is really only one word to describe this find. WOW.
I just hope when the big hue and cry has died down that Richard is given all due respect he deserves. He was after all a King of England regardless of how he became it. Rest in peace White Rose.

I agree, Boleyn. I hope he is bestowed the proper burial he deserves, regardless of how his life ended, he was once King. It is such an exciting discovery, which I was sure would never happen. I am also eager to see the documentary mentioned in the article, although it was probably not air in Canada.

Probably not Duchess, however I’m sure someone will upload it on here for to share with us and I’m pretty certain You Tube will have it at some point.
Haven’t seen you for a while? How have you been?

It has been awhile since I’ve been on the forum. I popped by a few times, but I’ve been busy with some family things, and getting ready for Christmas.

I hope the documentary is avaliable on You Tube. It will be interesting to see the dig and investigation. The history dork in me is screaming!!!

The lastest information is that the results of the DNA investigation and the other scientific studies will be announced the first full week in February and the TV documentary will be screened in the UK if not that same week, then soon after.

So tomorrows the big reveal. Do people think its Richard or not?
I’ve been following this and can’t help but think the whole thing is going to be something of an anti-climax…
Also if it IS Richard where should he be buried?

I really am looking forward to the findings. I guess I’m hoping it is Richard. Where should he be buried? I think he stated at one point where he wanted to be buried. I can’t remember where that is at the moment, but that is where he should be buried.

Was it York Sharon? I know he had a great affection for it (and the people for him) so I tend to think he should be buried there myself. But it looks like he’ll be buried in Leicester.

I’m not sure Bella. He did love York. It does look like Leicester will be it. I’m looking forward to seeing what Richard looked like. I understand they are recontructing his face from the skeleton. Now that is cool stuff.

If they’re bothering with a facial reconstruction does that mean the remains are definitely Richards? Hope so! I want to see what he looked like too – wonder if he’ll look anything remotely like his portraits?

The facial reconstruction could tell us a lot. We have portraits of the old boy of course but they were probably jazzed up a little by the artists to give the appearence of being more handsome than they actually were. Richard always struck me of being quite rugged, and from what portraits we do have of him I feel that he wasn’t quite as handsome as they portray.
Poor old Richard I feel that if his lords hadn’t of betrayed him at Bosworth he could have actually won against Henry Tulip.. I mean Tudor.
Would have been a very interesting reign me thinks if he had won. Would he have married Elizabeth of york? I rather think he may have married either a French Princess or even a Spanish princess, now there’s a thought.
