Richard III – the science behind the story
March 26th will see the reinterment of Richard III at Leicester Cathedral following earlier discovery of bones beneath a city car park.
We are more likely to think of history when we are looking at such news events, however, there is a great deal of science behind this story. From genetics, forensic analysis and carbon dating to many other fascinating aspects of science you can explore the story further.
