The 4th of February 2013 was a day of cultural, scientific and historical significance for Great Britain.  The University of Leicester held a press conference where they confirmed through DNA testing and radiocarbon dating, that the remains they had discovered buried beneath a Leicester City Council car park, were in fact those of King Richard III, whose body had been lost for over 500 years.
