This mightn't interest everyone, so apologies in advance. This might be better tucked away in a Group discussion so again, apologies. The hunt for the burial place and bones of Richard III, has stepped up in the last few weeksand apart from "worldwide media interest" there's to be a Channel 4 programme, later in the year. Been following this for weeks: King Richard III dig team make discovery in Leicester car park search | This is Leicestershire From today's Telegraph: "Archaeologists searching for the remains of Richard III are a step closer to finding his resting place after discovering the church where he was buried". The dig to recover the body of the king, who was defeated at the Battle of Bosworth by Henry Tudor in 1485, has unearthed the long-lost Franciscan Friary where he was buried. The church, which is also called Grey Friars, was known to be where Richard III was buried but its exact whereabouts had become lost over time. The discovery of the friary means the project, led by a team from the University of Leicester, has edged closer to finding the deposed monarch's grave. Lead archaeologist Richard Buckley, co-director of University of Leicester Archaeological Services, said: “The discoveries so far leave us in no doubt that we are on the site of Leicester's Franciscan Friary, meaning we have crossed the first significant hurdle of the investigation. “It is remarkable that the third trench has now made us certain that we have located the Friary church – not only a huge step forward in the search for the remains of Richard III, but also important new evidence for one of Leicester's major religious buildings, lost for over 400 years". The University of Leicester, with the Richard III Society and Leicester City Council, will open the site to the public on Saturday, September 8 from 11am to 2pm.
