Although I didn't see the dig site on account of me being feeble, ;) , it was a mere 15 minutes walk from my home, now of course comes where to inter his remains, some say the local Cathedral, about a minute from the dig site or Westminster Abbey, :S M

I watched a documentary about the dig around 2 weeks ago on one of the history channels, very interesting and he's to be reinterred in Leicester Cathedral according to the link that Larn posted above. ;)

Ahahaha nah moon if you watched the programme he had a parking space reserved for him under a letter R.
Was quite spooky, the first trench they dug, the first thing they found was Richard III, was a huge fluke.

And he's going to get dug up again on Dave... and again, and agin, an a...

What is weird is that someone had painted 'R' on the tarmac in the car park just over the spot where they actually found his bones... and not one of your usual 'taggers' ( not sure they've got up to 'r' in the alphabet anyway ). And no self proclaimed wizard/medium/psychic has come out of the woodwork claiming the glory for having done so. Spooky!!!
