Forensic Reconstruction Gives New Look to Richard III

Posted: Updated:
LONDON, ENGLAND -

A bust of the King Richard III was unveiled in London on Tuesday.

It follows Monday's revelation that bones found under a car park in the city of Leicester are those of Richard, who was killed in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 as he fought to keep his crown.

The facial reconstruction was commissioned by the Richard III Society and is based on scans made of the skull found buried in Leicester.

The real Richard will be reburied at Leicester Cathedral.
