    A Brief History of the Ancient City

    Leicester is fast becoming a historical landmark for Britain. Following the discovery of Richard III’s body in a council car park, the city has been a hive of activity and interest.

    A study by archaeologists from the University of Leicester has shown that the King was buried without ceremony, the grave being dug at an awkward angle and the body not being arranged. The study has also given historians further evidence of how the king died and how he lived his life.

    The discovery of Richard III’s body has led to a great economic boost in Leicester, being one of the biggest historical finds in decades, it has secured the city a place on the list Britain’s tourist hot spots.
