Remains of Richard Of York Found Under Parking Lot, Boners Jumping On The Bandwagon

The discovery of King Richard III under a parking lot in the English city of Leicester thrilled history buffs around the world. But the news meant a winter of discontent for the rival city of York, and now the two are doing battle over the royal bones. Officials in Leicester say the monarch, who was unceremoniously buried without a coffin 528 years ago, will be re-interred with kingly dignity in the city’s cathedral. Mike Bennett, who runs York’s small Richard III Museum, said he had been circulating a petition for months — since the reports of the skeleton’s identity emerged — “but it’s only since the bones have been declared to be him that others have jumped on the bandwagon.”
