It’s Richard III

Richard Buckley returns to announce the team’s conclusion.

He says that it is their academic view that “beyond reasonable doubt the individual exhumed at Grey Friars on September 12th is indeed Richard III, the last Plantagenet king of England”.

Whoops and cheers follow the announcement.

Reinternment will be in Leicester Cathedral.

When he was still Duke of Gloucester, Richard captured Berwick for the last time on 24th August, 1482.  This was part of a complicated campaign to aid the Duke of Albany usurp the Scottish king James III.
