You are welcome DowntownTO  Star and it's so good to see you

Thank you!

I'm very interested in the archaeological investigation into the whereabouts of Richard III's grave. I'll try to post a link to an article - I've never done that before, so, as the old song says, "Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye . . ."  .

OK, here it is:  http://www.telegraph.co.u...n-the-Hunchback-King.html



well, it worked  JumpingStar when time is up)

and it's interesting how he is described...would not have guessed form the photo

Portraits portray the 32-year-old ruler as deformed and ugly; Shakespeare, in his 1591 play Richard III, describes the king as a “poisonous bunch-backed toad”, a demonic womaniser and a coward.

OK, here it is:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/history/9497082/Digging-for-dirt-on-the-Hunchback-King.html

Update: if you haven't been following this, exciting things have been happening. The archaeologists have succeeded in finding the Grey Friars church where Richard was buried; and they've found a skeleton which is a strong contender to be Richard's. It's male; it has skull damage consistent with historical accounts of the injuries which caused his death; aaaaaAAANND, the skeleton has severe scoliosis! It will take about 3 months to do conclusive DNA testing, but everyone involved in the dig is popping out of their skin with excitement.

This is really quite exciting, isn't it? I love stuff like this, finding lost places and people in history. Smiley

I am curious, however, if whether this is Richard, and they inter him in a royal vault (whether at Windsor, or Fotheringhay where his mother is buried, will they lay him to proper rest in a Catholic service? After all, at the time he died, the CoE was still about a hundred years off...

(does this deserve its own thread?)

I've been thinking about the same thing, Lady A. He was buried in a Catholic church so I assume that he had a Catholic service at the time, although someone better informed historically might correct me on that. If there's a religious service this time it will probably be C of E but IMO it would certainly be a good thing if the relevant Catholic authorities took part as well.

Oh yum, we have a Gloucester thread.

William of Gloucester was hot, I'd definitely cuddle him.

I know one of Alice's godchildren and he said that by the end she was a tragic sight, dementia is such a cruel disease. You can tell she has aristocratic lineage, she's so poised and appropriate for every situation.

Senna and Tane definitely have the "trendiest" names in the extended family.  They are even more "out-there" than Savannah.  I wonder what Tane looks like as Senna is adorable.
