Scientists announced yesterday that they have unearthed the remains of King Richard III. The 500-year-old bones were found under a parking lot in the British city of Leicester last September and testing has proved “beyond a reasonable doubt” that they are the king’s remains. King Richard III died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 and his remains had been missing for centuries. Researchers said 10 injuries to the body were inflicted by weapons like swords, daggers and halberds and were consistent with accounts of Richard being struck down in battle. The remains also displayed signs of scoliosis, a curvature of the spine, consistent with contemporary accounts of Richard's appearance. The mayor of Leicester said the monarch would be interred in the city's cathedral and a memorial service would be held.
