As if being slandered by Shakespeare wasn't enough, there's this from newser:

"If you thought being found buried under a parking lot was about as unroyal as it could get for King Richard III, think again. In a paper published today in Antiquity, researchers describe his body as being buried in haste, crammed into a too-small grave that was roughly dug ... He was found in a somewhat folded position with no death shroud, and his hands may have been bound ...

"The paper also reveals that it's likely his body was battered after his death: There were 10 wounds—including stabs to his back and buttocks—in addition to blows to his head ... The new findings further indicate Richard III died in 'violent humiliation.'"

And they're still fighting over where Richard should be reburied.

Wonder if the sudden zeal to dig up car parks is the result of dogging?
