ScienceDaily (Sep. 7, 2012) — Archaeologists from the University of Leicester who are leading the search for the lost grave of King Richard III announced today that they have made a new advance in their quest.

They have uncovered evidence of the lost garden of Robert Herrick – where, historically, it is recorded there was a memorial to Richard III.

Now the ‘time tomb team’ as they have become to be known has discovered paving stones which they believe belong to the garden.

The University of Leicester is leading the archaeological search for the burial place of King Richard III with Leicester City Council, in association with the Richard III Society

1. Richard III dig: Search team uncovers human bones

Human remains have been found by archaeologists searching for the lost grave of Richard III.

The king died at the battle of Bosworth in 1485 and was recorded as being buried in a Leicester church, which was later demolished.

Last week a team from the University of Leicester located traces of the building under a council car park.

Now it has been confirmed work in the church's choir - where Richard was buried - has found human bones.
