They're scientists so they have to be careful not to leap to conclusions, but they've dug in the place where Richard was known to be buried and found the skeleton of a man with spinal curvature (which means one shoulder would have been higher than the other), serious trauma to the skull and an arrow between the ribs; who else could it possibly be?
With a gold ring round his helmet,
Fierce as a cornered hog,
The small man braved his enemies,
Unhorsed, down there in the bog,
Till William Gardner, commoner,
With knighthood on his mind,
And a damn big heavy poleaxe
Approached him from behind.
Then all the saints and angels
To whom we used to pray
Came slithering out of heaven
Like trinkets from a tray.
