Richard III remains found in England
LEICESTER, England (AP) - He was missing for 500 years, but experts in Britain say they have now found the remains of England's King Richard III. The battle-scarred remains were found under a parking lot in the city of Leicester (LEHS'-tuhr) and scientists conducted DNA tests, matching a sample taken from a distant living relative. Scientists say it's "beyond reasonable doubt" that the skeleton is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485.
Richard III was immortalized in a play by Shakespeare as a hunchbacked usurper who left a trail of bodies — including those of his two young nephews, murdered in the Tower of London — on his way to the throne.
