I agree Lyn, though thought we would have heard the DNA results by now

From a historical point of view I find this story fascinating, but from an anti royalist viewpoint it worries me. If it is proved to be Richard III are we going to spend a fortune reburying him at Westminster Abbey?

Lyn
Just searched and , though I don't like to take anything in the telegraph as gospel (they did always think Margaret should have been Sainted), it does look as if the DNA results might confirm the identification (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/history/97458...ichard-III.html )

No phil I had a word. He's going in with you


Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity,
and I'm not sure about the former.

Well I don't mind being buried at Westminster Abbey, but he'll have to hang around for another hundred years at least, because I'm not going anywhere soon.
