The car park burial plot that was fit for a king
THE discovery follows another significant car-park find.
The University of Leicester confirmed on February 4 that a skeleton found in the excavation of a car park was, beyond reasonable doubt, that of Richard III.
He was killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field on August 22, 1485. For comparison, that was some 200 years after the Archbishop of York had let the Beverley guildhall to merchants.
The King was, apparently, buried in a monastery.

The bones found under the Leicester car park were identified based on a combination of evidence from carbon dating, comparison with contemporary reports of his appearance, and a comparison of his DNA with two descendants of Richard III's eldest sister, Anne of York.
