Thank you.

LOL.....

Anyway, how can they prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it's him?  I'm presuming they didn't have DNA screening when old Dickie was alive................!?!?!?

There's a programme on the telly about it tonight

Oh good I was wondering when that would be on.

Channel 4, I think - at nine o'clock.

I always thought the plantagenets were a type of fruit that Carribean people used in their cooking.

Thanks Wilkie!

David - what did you think the Tudors were? Something that goes in sandwiches with sweetcorn?

I'm quite surprised that they only recovered two skeletons from the excavation though (Probably-Richard-III and one they think was an abbess) you'd think as it was the grounds of an abbey there would be more remains knocking around.

I'm really looking forward to the facial reconstruction - be interesting to see how close it is to the portrait.

They were able to get a DNA sample from a direct living descendant of Richard's sister, Anne of York.

Can't wait to see the programme tonight, the facial reconstruction will be very interesting.
