Sworn to Secrecy
Richard III’s bones may have been found in Leicester car park…
Yesterday the archaeologists uncovered human bones at the Leicester car park, where the hunt for the grave of Richard III has been going on for a couple of weeks.
Initially the archaeologists were able to identify the cloister walk of the medieval friary. From here it became possible to identify the remains and the layout of the walls of the church itself. On top of that the archaeologists were able to determine the layout of the garden, which a burgher at later state had laid out on top of the old demolished church. In this garden the architect Wren witnessed a pole at the center, which was placed to commemorate the actual grave of Richard III. Where and exactly what the archaeologists have uncovered is as of now not disclosed.
Philippa Langley, who has been the driving force behind the sensational excavations in Leicester, spoke earlier today to “This is Leicester” explaining that she was “sworn to secrecy” about is the actual character of the findings. Exactly why Philippa Langley as of now is “sworn to secrecy” is currently not known. But it stands to reason she would not be “sworn” to keep her mouth shut if there was nothing to keep it shut about!
We shall see! According to “This is Leicester” the city as well as the University and the team of archaeologists have called for.
