Researchers have released to the public a 3-dimensional model of King Richard III's grave. This model of King Richard III’s grave shows the king’s remains in-situ shortly after their discovery by University of Leicester archaeologists beneath a car park in Leicester in 2012. The model has been generated using Agisoft’s Photoscan
DNA analysis has conclusively proved that the remains found under an English parking lot two years ago do, in fact, belong to King Richard III. "The evidence is overwhelming that these are indeed the remains of Richard III," University of Leicester geneticist Turi King said during a press conference. Just how overwhelming?
An analysis of Richard III's remains have revealed the monarch dined on expensive wildfowl, fresh fish, and drank plenty of wine. The analysis of Richard's rib bone showed that there was a significant shift in the values of nitrogen and oxygen isotopes late in Richard's life, Evans said. Nitrogen isotopes are natural
Preparations to rebury the remains of King Richard III are underway as architectural plans are being drawn up for a £1 million raised tomb in Leicester Cathedral. "This amazing chapter in the story of Richard III's life, death and rediscovery has been a partnership between the City Council, the Cathedral and
An examination of the remains of King Richard III has found he suffered from the spine-curving condition known as scoliosis, and he may have undergone some painful treatments in order to straighten it out. At the time, scoliosis was generally thought to be caused by an imbalance in the body's humors.
The remains of King Richard III were recently identified using mitochondrial DNA tests, a type of DNA transmitted through women. Now researchers are trying to identify the king through DNA found on the Y chromosome, carried only by men. Chris Tyler-Smith, a geneticist at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge,
