The Past Is Never Dead, Even If Richard III Is
DNA tests done on skeletal remains found under a parking lot in Leicester, UK, have been definitively identified as those of Richard III, who died at Bosworth in 1485:
Experts from the University of Leicester said DNA from the bones matched that of descendants of the monarch’s family.
Lead archaeologist Richard Buckley, from the University of Leicester, told a press conference to applause: “Beyond reasonable doubt it’s Richard.”
Richard, killed in battle in 1485, will be reinterred in Leicester Cathedral.
Whether it does or not, it’s certainly additional proof that William Faulkner was correct.
