Bones of 15th-Century Monarch King Richard III Found Under Car Park

In September, British researchers believed they had made a pretty startling discovery while digging under a car park in Leicester, which is about 100 miles southeast of London.

They had come upon what they thought were the remains of King Richard III, who died fighting the forces of Henry Tudor at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. He is the last English monarch to die during war.
