The research findings

 The research findings

Damage to the skull indicated battle wounds whilst the former king was alive, possibly fatal or causing loss of consciousness. Marks on the ribs and pelvis suggested 'humiliation' wounds, post-mortem mutilation to the body in order to show disrespect.

The spine of the body had curvature consistent with idiopathic adolescent onset scoliosis which developed after the age of 10.

The remains will now be interred at Leicester Cathedral, being the nearest consecrated site.
