Those Car Park Bones? Richard III's!

Remember those bones found under a car park (parking garage, I think?) in Leicester, England? At the time, I wrote archaelogists were guessing they were the bones of Richard III. Today, the speculation has ended!

Experts from the University of Leicester said DNA from the bones matched that of descendants of the monarch's family. Lead archaeologist Richard Buckley, from the University of Leicester, told a press conference to applause: "Beyond reasonable doubt it's Richard."

Richard, who died in battle 1485, will be reinterred in Leicester Cathedral.

Watch the celebrated actors who have played Richard III.
