Face of Richard III to be revealed
Staff and agenciesThe face of King Richard III is set to be unveiled to the world after a skeleton found under a council car park was confirmed as that of the last Plantagenet king.
A computer image showing what the monarch might have looked like is to be released by the Richard III Society on Tuesday morning after experts said the skeleton unearthed in Leicester was proven "beyond reasonable doubt" to be that of the king who died in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.
The image is based on a CT scan taken by experts at the University of Leicester, who discovered the king's skeleton during an archaeological dig last September with the help of the society.
