Update for those who might be interested: the remains unearthed in the parking lot at Leicester University have been confirmed as those of King Richard, the last Plantagenet king of England. The details are all over Yahoo News and Google.

Just doing some stained glass puzzles and came across this one. I saw the news and tv programme about it. Wonderful!

Thanks for dropping by, melime and gemstone. (One of the niece's sons is a carpenter now living in London, UK. He was the one who donated the DNA sample which nailed everything down)

I saw this on the news as well. I thought it was cool that they were able to extract some DNA and match it to his known descendants. Just fascinating-I love history and things related to it like this.

gemstone

And his descendant (gggggggggggggggggreat niece) lives at Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island. I believe her brother lives in Toronto.
