No it wasn't the big lead Baltimore ran up in the first half or the power outage after halftime or the almost comeback by San Francisco. Yesterday's amazing, almost unbelieveable story, was news of the discovery and verification of the body of King Richard 111 of England. His body was uncovered underneath a carpark in Leicester. The carpark had been built over a 1400's, long lost Greyfriars friary. Richard 111 was buried there after the battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. You may have read about him in Shakespeare's play, King Richard 111.
The last of the famous House of Plantagenets, Richard was descended from the even more famous Richard the Lionhearted. The women in this line are almost as famous as the men-Eleanor of Aquitaine and Anne Neville among others. The Plantagenets' kings began their history fighting in the crusades and ended their line with battling at home and losing to, the House of Tudor.
Fascinating history and even more fascinating is that the verification of the body of Richard 111 came from the use of DNA from Michael Ibsen, an English cabinet maker who is decended in a direct line from Richard's sister Anne of York. Modern archeological technology is almost as amazing as this story. To think someone is still around who is directly descended from a medieval king! History class and literature come to life.
