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 it is "beyond reasonable doubt" that a battle-scarred skeleton unearthed last year is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485.

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

And DNA from the skeleton matches a sample taken from a distant living relative.

The last English monarch to die in battle, Richard was depicted in a play by William Shakespeare as a hunchbacked usurper who left a trail of bodies — including those of his two princely nephews, murdered in the Tower of London — on his way to the throne.

Many historians say that villainous image is unfair.

Umm, no.

Obviously he wasn't buried where he fell.
The body was retrieved and laid to rest in a Friary, which was later torn down.

You have to take into consideration that this was over 500 years ago.
