Evidence of King Richard III lost chapel found in York

6

Archaeologists working in York, England, have found evidence of a memorial chapel that King Richard III commissioned to be built in 1483.

A University of York spokesman for the department stressed the research so far looked positive, but said researchers can’t prove exactly where the chapel was until a larger excavation has taken place.

But lead archaeologist, Tim Sutherland, from the university, said they had found lead and glass from the windows and worked stone which proved archaeological evidence the chapel exists.
