The lead coffin found near the body of King Richard III during archeological excavations in Leicester has taken a surprise turn!
Archaeologists had thought the 600-year-old metal casket, which was
found in a stone tomb at Greyfriars in August, might belong to
knight Sir William de Moton. But analysis is showing that the skeleton appears to be that of a female.
Working with a newly found list of burials at the Friary, scientists are attempting to discover just who is buried in this high status coffin.
