Researchers from the University of Leicester said they had found a male skeleton with similarities to historical descriptions of Richard, who ruled England between 1483 and his death in battle in 1485. The remains, which are well preserved, are undergoing DNA analysis. 'What we have uncovered is truly remarkable,' said Richard Taylor, the university's director of corporate affairs.
