Carpark king’s re­burial

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

LON­DON: Eng­land’s last York­ist king is to be laid to rest in a £ 1 mil­lion ( R15m) raised tomb.

Univer­sity of Le­ices­ter ar­chae­ol­o­gists found the re­mains of Richard III af­ter a dig in a city car park.

Le­ices­ter Cathe­dral, which will raise the money for his tomb, said the de­sign will be ready in Septem­ber.

Once the Cathe­dral’s fab­ric com­mis­sion ap­proves it, the long-dead king will be re-in­terred next May.

How­ever, the Plan­ta­genet Al­liance, a group of Richard’s rel­a­tives, has ap­plied to the UK High Court for a ju­di­cial re­view into the plans for the site. – Daily Mail
