So it was all true. Everything we were led to believe. Shakespeare said he was a crookback (scoliosisto us now). And the brutal death blow to the head. Supposedly at the hands of a Welshman and his halberd when the King's horse bogged in marshy land. Someone did a lot more than that however, as the skull was found to have signs of 10 blows to the head which I imagine did more than simply remove his helmet.
He then appears to be hurriedly buried under the floor of Greyfriars Church his wrists possibly still bound together.
What a wondrous thing archaeology is.
