RICHARD III'S REMAINS UNCOVERED IN U.K.

Monday, February 04, 2013 - The remains of English king Richard III have been discovered beneath a parking lot in the U.K., over 500 years after he was killed in battle.

A team of archaeologists and historians found the bones during an excavation in Leicester, England last autumn and now DNA results have confirmed "beyond reasonable doubt" that they belong to the 15th century king, who

died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, aged 33.

The royal is believed to have died a violent death, suffering two severe blows to the head. He was buried with his hands tied.

A special memorial service is expected to take place for the reburial of Richard III, who was immortalised as a scheming monarch in William Shakespeare's classic play, at Leicester Cathedral early next year . (Mt/wnwcnn/kl)
