Richard III Foundation supports archaeological project to find missing monarch

The Richard III Foundation has come out with strong support for the archaeological dig that is underway in Leicester, which hopes to find the remains of King Richard III and end a 500-year-old mystery of where is his last resting place.

The University of Leicester, Leicester City Council and the Richard III Society have teamed up to search a parking lot in Leicester, which may have been the site where the English king was buried after he was killed at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.

The archaeological dig is being filmed by Britain’s Channel 4, but no show will be produced unless their is a major discovery.
