As an archaeologist (specialising in osteology) I'm glad to see that people are excited about this :)
But, for the UK people who may have caught the Channel 4 show on it, that Phillipa woman was really bloody annoying. Clearly had no idea about actual archaeological procedure.

Archaeologists Find King Richard III's Forgotten Bones

Genealogical researchers managed to track down a 17th generation descendent of Richard's sister living in London, whose DNA was confirmed to match with Richard's.

That is London, Ontario, Canada. Not the UK

Ppphhht, you didn't kill us 600 years ago and you sure as shit won't do it now. :P

For the glory of the House of York I attack! This battle defies time, logic, and continents! I just hope you don't find the Yorkist weakness, the pesky halberd to the head. We are powerless with out our heads.

Sizzle Montyjing:
I... I swear I've heard this before...


Yeah... so I guess they've finally dug him up now, right?
That's... nice, I guess.

The King is (500 years) dead! Long live the (very dead) King!

*Throws a halberd at your head*

GLORY TO THE LANCASTRIANS! I CLAIM YOUR HEAD IN HONOR OF MY FALLEN ANCESTORS WHO DIED FOR...FOR...

What the fuck were we fighting over again?

I find it immensely amusing that his skeleton was found under a car park. That is all.

I also don't understand why some people need a "reason" for anything. Science is cool without having any practical uses. Finding the bones of a king underneath a car park is also very cool. There's nothing wrong in just doing things because it's awesome, damned !

We interrupt this message board for an announcement by Brian Blessed.

So, did anybody find the bones of a horse nearby or did he never get that one?
