News About King Richard III / Armitage


♛ King Richard Armitage ♛

Mr. Armitage had intended to join in on the BBC Radio Leicester Show shortly after 5 p.m. on Sunday 3rd of February, 2013, but could not make it, as his flight was delayed.
So here the recording of his apology, sent to BBC Leicester via mail, kindly shared by Servetus:

In further parts of the show, Philippa Langley and David Baldwin were interviewed about King Richard III. (The interview with Philippa Langley is an excerpt of the radio report mentioned in our news of 30.12.2012 with BBC Radio Leicester. The replay will become available on BBC iPlayer in the next days.)

♛ King Richard III ♛

Is he or is he not…?
That is the main question today.
But of whom are we talking about?
The University of Leicester released a first picture of the skull of the male skeleton found in Leicester:

Dr Appleby said:

The skull was in good condition, although fragile, and was able to give us detailed information about this individual. It has been CT scanned at high resolution in order to allow us to investigate interesting features in as much detail as possible.
In order to determine whether this individual is Richard III we have built up a biological profile of its characteristics. We have also carefully examined the skeleton for traces of a violent death.

Now is he or is he not…?
We will have to wait a bit further, till 10 a.m. today, the time of the Press conference held by the University of Leicester, to finally reveal the truth about their find last September 2012 and the subsequent research.
