Just learned that the discovery of King Richard's body was even more of a miracle than we thought. His grave came within inches of being destroyed.
“It’s a miracle that King Richard's skeleton was where it was," site director Mathew Morris of the university's archaeological services said in a written statement. "To the east, there is a massive disturbance that has removed all evidence of the church -- which must have come within inches of his head."

The Wars of the Roses is coming to television! Here's the headline from the Daily Mail (UK):

The series will air on Starz on August 8, 2013.

  1. This is so very poignant, and I love the manner in which you present Richard's humanity, such as his perhaps vanity and mourning--and also his attempt at acceptance. He was, after all, human, just like us.

    Thank you again for this beautiful and very personal (if that rings right) writing.

    1. Thank you so much, Lisl. I appreciate your sentiments.
