Richard III to be Reburied in Leicester
Tuesday, May 27, 2014
LONDON, ENGLAND—The High Court has ruled that the remains identified as those of Richard III should be buried in the city of Leicester, where the bones were found in 2012, according to the plans made by the archaeological team from the University of Leicester that conducted the excavation. A group called the Plantagenet Alliance, whose members claim to be distant relatives of the deceased, wanted the bones to be interred in York, where Richard III grew up. “It is time for King Richard III to be given a dignified reburial and finally laid to rest,” the judges said in their statement, reported by Phys.org.
