SECRETS OF THE DEAD
Resurrecting Richard III

 

In 2011, an incredible archaeological find was made: the bones of King Richard III, buried beneath a parking lot. Richard is thought of as the most evil king to have ruled England, and also as a fearsome warrior, despite the extreme curvature of his spine. Now, scientists are testing the bones to find out more about the king and conducting fascinating experiments to determine whether Richard could have fought so ferociously in battle with such a severe deformity.
