"Researchers from the University of Leicester confirm that a skeleton found under a car park is that of King Richard III following extensive testing.
A series of papers presented at a news conference on Monday, 4 February detailed the highly-anticipated results of tests carried out on a skeleton thought to belong to Richard III, who died in battle more than 500 years ago.
Richard Buckley, dig project leader, said: "It is the academic conclusion that beyond reasonable doubt, the individual exhumed at Grey Friars in September 2011 is King Richard III - the last Plantagenet king of England."
I still can't believe it's actually him. What an extraordinary find!
For those of you who, like myself, are not in the UK and therefore did not have a chance to watch the Channel 4 documentary about the search for Richard III, here it is.
A big 'Thank you!' to LilyElizabeta for making it available on YouTube.
