DNA Confirms Remains Found Under English Parking Lot Are Richard III (Video)

The skeletal remains of King Richard III, complete with battle wounds and a massively curved spine due to scoliosis, were discovered in Leicester, England and confirmed by DNA tests.

Richard “Crookback” was killed in the Battle of Bosworth Field, and the skeletal remains show that he died violently, of major blunt force trauma to the head and that his corpse was likely mistreated. He was buried in a quickly dug, makeshift grave at the Grayfriars friary, which eventually became a municipal parking lot, and the exact location of the grave had been lost. Archeologists found the remains and their research has proven their hunches that they had found the infamous Richard III.

Richard III was the last English king to be killed in battle.
