    Boy, I didn't see that coming! Any context for your post? :scratch:

    (For some reason, your post made me think of our friend and colleague, the late Richard King. I have no idea why.)

    I had been read something last week about a pending DNA test in order to confirm if it were Richard III but didn't see anything new. Thanks for the updated information..

    There of course also is some controversy regarding what to do with the remains now. Under a parking lot isn't exactly an auspicious resting place. There are plans to rebury him in the Leicester Cathedral, which is Anglican. The Church of England was started during the rule of Henry VIII, whose father is the one that defeated Richard III.

    I have never been a fan of burial relocation. I realize a parking lot may not be fitting but it was his final resting spot and as such should be re-interred there.

    So everybody should be buried where they fall?

    That is not where Richard III fell. That parking lot used to be where a monastery stood, until Henry VIII decided that Catholic Church property was Henry VIII property in the 1530's. Moving the remains to town's cathedral would at least be in spirit with his original internment...

    Not necessarily. The man was laid to rest in that spot for what was suppose to be eternity and I believe we should not disrespect the man by moving him.

    From what I understand his burial was less than respectful ... buried with his hands bound above his head with evidence of post death trauma to the body.

    Moving the dead is not a new thing. It seems fitting to put what is left of his body nearer to his grave.

    He's allegedly been buried everywhere else, why not? ;)
