    Quest for the Roses: The hunt for lost King Richard III | Fox News

  • Mrs Sally Skellington

    "University of Leicester archaeologists have found the lost church where Richard III was buried over 500 years ago – under a City Council carpark. After his defeat at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, the body of Britain’s last Plantagenet king was brought to Leicester where he was buried in a Franciscan friary. Known as the Church of the Grey Friars, the structure was demolished during the Dissolution of the Monasteries and its location forgotten."

I admire this statue of Richard III, showing him as the warrior he was. I think it may come closest to the real man - he must have been a fierce fighter. This photo is the best of the statue I have seen so far - I've been there, with all the trees and hedges it is very tricky to take a decent picture, let alone a brilliant one like this.
