The news today announced that that the much maligned Richard III has been buried under a car park for half a millennia. I bet that's got the Queen worried - no doubt she'll be steering well clear of construction sites for the foreseeable future.
I am intrigued though by these relatives of the deceased King that they have 'dug up'. Do you think they might wish to resurrect the Plantagenet line and stake a claim to the throne? More concern for Her Majesty...
I wonder if we'll ever find out if he really did order the murder of the Princes in the Tower. If he did, then frankly having a car park plonked on his head was probably just desserts.
In all seriousness though... what a story, what a find! Imagine the conversation when the diggers got home:
"Find anything interesting on your dig today dear? Any coins, broken bits of pottery?"
"Yeah, Richard the Third".
