Dead Kings. Old ones.

  English King Richard III found in a parking lot.  Glad to have him where he is known.

  Last English King to be killed on a battlefield in 1485.  He just missed the discovery of New World.  Body brought back strapped over a packhorse with the head bashed in and an arrow in the back.  Last English King to die in battle.  Laid to rest in a little church.  Church leveled later.  Parking lot built.  Just found recently.  Traced and I.D.ed by DNA match.
