Reburying King Richard III - 27 Mar 2015 
This week, Britain finally buries — or rather reburies — the Dark Ages.

On Thursday, King Richard III — England’s last medieval monarch — will be interred in Leicester Cathedral, almost three years after archaeologists dug his remains out of a car park run by the local council.

Archaeologist Mathew Morris stands in the trench where he found skeleton remains during an archaeological dig to find the remains of King Richard III in Leicester, central England September 12, 2012. A 500-year-old mystery of where England's King Richard III was buried after his death in battle may finally be about to be solved after archaeologists found bones beneath a city centre parking lot. A team from the University of Leicester are excavating where a Franciscan friary known as Greyfriars may house the monarch's remains after he died at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 - the last English king to die in battle.
