In September 2012, archaeologists unearthed remains from a Leicester car park, covering what was once the city’s medieval Franciscan friary. After five months of waiting and exhaustive scientific tests, those bones were revealed to be those of Richard III, the infamous last Plantagenet king of England and the last English King to die in battle.
