Leicester, Sept 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Archeologists are making more efforts so as to get to the lost grave of King Richard III. They have been able to find the skeletal remains of a body that has a metal arrow at its back.
The skeletal remains were dug up at a parking area in Leicester the previous Tuesday. The dig up was conducted by an archeological team from Leicester University and laboratory tests are still being carried out to determine whether the remains belong to King Richard. The remains were found buried without the use of a coffin and they believe that this body had been buried in shrouds.
The location that the remains were found is believed to be the choir of the church of Grey Friars. This site was also discovered through the dig up that had taken a period of about three weeks and it is believed to be the site where monarchs were laid to rest.
The research and analysis that had been previously conducted on the body led to the conclusion that the remains belonged to a male adult in good condition. Richard Taylor of Leicester University said to the media that the cause of the death was trauma on the cranium.
