The Richard III Society on Tuesday unveiled a reconstruction of the face of King Richard III based on the skull of the monarch, whose body was discovered buried under a parking lot in Leicester, England last year. Scientists in the UK announced that they had found the king's missing remains on Monday.
"The Richard III Society today unveiled the world's only facial reconstruction of the human remains found at the Greyfriars in Leicester, yesterday confirmed as belonging to Richard III," the Society announced on their website, along with images of the reconstruction. "The reconstruction project, led by Professor Caroline Wilkinson, Professor of Craniofacial Identification at the University of Dundee, was commissioned and funded by the Richard III Society."
According to their website, the Richard III Society "aims to promote, in every possible way, research into the life and times of Richard III, and to secure a reassessment of the material relating to this period, and of the role of this monarch in English history."
