Richard III Among Us Once More

For those of you who know my fascination with Richard III, I'm sure you can imagine how excited I was yesterday to read that the bones found during The Greyfriars Dig were indeed those of Richard III. As if that wasn't exciting enough, now the Richard III society has unveiled the reconstructed face of this medieval king!

I have to admit, I never pictured Richard III as having such a youthful countenance; I've always imagined a more weary face mixed with a premature tiredness, but that doesn't make me any less excited about this reconstruction. Although the stories and mysteries surrounding this monarch will most likely forever be in question, at least we now have a tangible element on which to attach our theories.
