Scientists confirm that 500-year-old skeleton found under parking lot is England's King Richard III [View all]

LEICESTER, England (AP) Scientists say they have found the 500-year-old remains of England's King Richard III under a parking lot in the city of Leicester.

University of Leicester researchers say tests on a battle-scarred skeleton unearthed last year prove "beyond reasonable doubt" that it is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, and whose remains have been missing for centuries.

"Richard III, the last Plantaganet King of England," has been found," said the university's deputy registrar, Richard Taylor.

Osteologist Jo Appleby said Monday that study of the bones provided "a highly convincing case for identification of Richard III."
