It's rare for an archaeologist to be able to identify the person whose bones they have found, but the whole world is waiting to see if the bones found under a Leicester City Council staff car park in August are those of King Richard III. DNA and other tests are now complete, and the results will be announced at a media conference at the University of Leicester on Monday 4 February at 10am. Although the public will not be able to attend, the event is being live-streamed by the BBC to their website http://www.bbc.co.uk/
An hour later the information will be available at http://www.le.ac.uk/richardiii/ (Is that web address a clue?)
A Channel 4 documentary about the project will be screened at 9pm that evening.
