So, today a press conference was held in which the university of Leisester announced that through DNA testing a various other tests that the skeletal remains discovered in a council car park are indeed that or Richard III. Link - http://news.sky.com/story/1047231/richard-iii-council-car-park-skeleton-is-king I must say it is quite a fascinating find, however I am somewhat sceptical on the whole thing. If they are indeed the remains of a former king, then this is a remarkable find. However the thought that plays heavily on my mind is, what if they have just found some random remains in this car park hoping heavily upon it, pouring time, effort and money into this discovery... and find that it is not what they were looking for. Of course since its discovery back in september 2012 there has been a lot of focus upon this from certain groups, surely the University had some high hopes to fulfill. So could this really be the Kings remains, or are they just finding the means to an end upon the subject and providing the media with their catch of the day. I do have some reasons for my doubt. Firstly the grave was shallow, and not too far from the surface, why had it not been discovered prior to a universities attempt, in which the remains were found upon the first day of a three week long excavation. Secondly, the feet were removed at a considerable time after burial, (of course no time frame provided AFAIK) I'm not too sure of people running around digging up an unmarked grave to remove deceased feet... if it was done at a far later date, then surely the discovery of feet should have prompted an interest into who lay there.
