King Richard III has been located after more than 500 years in a shallow grave, and Internet searchers are looking for facts on the Plantagenet kings grave depth, missing feet, and how tall he was.
The astonishing find came as the result of several coincidences, and Leicester University scientists have concluded that if things had been just a little different, Richard III might never have been found.
King Richard III's final adventure began when screenwriter Philippa Langley funded a dig to find Richard III's final resting-place. Ms. Langley told the Daily Mail that she felt a cold chill when walking over the parking lot where she had been hoping to research a new screenplay.
Somehow the archaeology got done, a long-lost medieval church was found, and a body was discovered in it. This triggered a series of events and coincidences that any fiction writer could be proud of.
