The Needle’s royal correspondent reports today that the skeleton of a man found buried beneath a council car park in Leicester, is conceivably, almost certainly, likely to be the remains of King Richard III. “It was the high cheek bones that finally convinced me, that and the strong chin and intelligent forehead.”
“Also, there is no evidence of a horse skeleton under the car park, which is quite telling. As everyone knows, Richard III was looking for a horse when he died, which he did not find. If a horse skeleton had been found near the remains then that would have certainly ruled out that the skeleton was Richard III. Therefore the absence of a horse skeleton increases the likelihood that it is indeed, possibly, maybe him.”
Editors note: This story needs padding. Add some Shakespeare!
