Following today's announcement that bones discovered beneath a Leicester car park are believed to be those of Richard III, here's a closer look at the remains
Scientific evidence confirms "beyond reasonable doubt" that a skeleton uncovered beneath a Leicester car park is that of Richard III, experts have announced. Testing of bones from the fully intact skeleton, which was unearthed by a team from the University of Leicester and the Richard III Society in a project launched in August 2012, revealed DNA that matched those of descendants of the king's family.
Following this morning's press conference, a selection of images of the discovery have been released by the University of Leicester.
