Latest Richard Buckley Stories
In what is being hailed as the most complete forensic study ever conducted on a medieval monarch, experts from the University of Leicester and the British Geological Survey have uncovered new details about the life of King Richard III by analyzing his bone and tooth chemistry.
A new review on the University of Leicester’s discovery of Richard III’s remains underneath a car park in Leicester has found that the slain King of England was buried in a “hastily dug grave.” The review reveals for the first time specific details of the grave where King Richard was buried after an excavation team unearthed the site last year.
Richard III, who ruled England from 1483 until his death in 1485, when he died in the Battle of Bosworth Field, has been featured in popular culture for centuries. He was first and foremost portrayed in Shakespeare’s 1592 play Richard III as a villainous psychopath who would stop at nothing to claw his way to power.
Just hours after announcing that they would consider extending their hunt for the lost grave of King Richard III, archaeologists revealed that they had discovered evidence of a lost garden that brings them one step closer.
