Who thinks the discovery of Richard III’s final resting place in a parking lot at Grey Friars church is a fascinating as I do?

W. Shakespeare must be turning over in his grave!

I’ll make no bones about it.

Seems like an ignominious end. Probably the mother of all cover-ups. But whose as-phalt was it that he ended up there?

I suppose if you are a history buff, then this is in some way meaningful. I don’t know that it actually means anything at all to the rest of us.

They paved paradise and put in a parking lot.
It is interesting, if rather ironic. Death the great dethronement ( is that a word? I think it should be. )
6 feet under….a BMW. lol

It is interesting that the place he was buried was lost in history. makes you wonder what else we lost or have forgotten.

Do you think that he had to pay the daily rate because he didn’t have a ticket?

what I find more facinating is the tech they used to identify him. Talk about AMAZING!! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-21063882

Brilliant stuff. What car would he have driven into the carpark?

Personally, I think the nobler occupant of gravespace at Greyfriars church is Bobby, the incredibly loyal Skye terrier who kept vigil for his master for 14 years until his death.
