One article I read said that his reign will now have to be reassessed.
Why? Why doe the presence of the body mean the entire reign is open for investigation?
The historians are using the opportunity and interest to re-examine what really happened during his reign and what was propaganda. For example, examination of the body shows his physical deformity was not as bad as was claimed.
This has actually been done before. Many years ago, there was a semi documentary with the actors who played Chief Inspectors Barlow and Watt from the British TV series "Z Cars" and "Softly, Softly", who investigated Richard III as if they, Barlow and Watt were conducting a modern day murder investigation. Also Josephine Tey's book "The Daughter of Time" has her main character, a policeman, investigating the King from his hospital bed. Barlow and Watt found that the portraits of Richard were altered to make him seem deformed and therefore, evil. A previous theory was that one arm might have been overdeveloped because of the use of weapons, and that might have made one of Richard's shoulders seem higher than the other.The reconstructed face of the skill shows something not dissimilar to the portraits, but not so worried looking. In Tudor times, the Countess of Desmond who had danced with Richard when he was Duke of Gloucester said he was the handsomest man in the room, savr for his brother Edward IV
As for the signs, I was ROFLMAO. They are the funniest things I've seen in ages. Todays london Daily Mail has a cartoon "City of Leicester. Short stay carpark up to 2 hours. Long stay carpark up to 600 years"
As for the burial, I believe that the present Duke of Gloucester, also a Richard, is a member of the Richard III society, so it would be nice if he attended, no matter where it takes place.
