Tomorrow (Australian time) we find out.

I'm saying (as much as I want it to be Richard) I'm going to say - No.

Hoping I'm proved wrong.

What do you think?

I'm going to go with a very big maybe.  Everything seems to add up.  If it is. What a score for the archaeologists who discovered him.

I am going with yes.  Stranger things have happened!

I'm going with yes.

Mainly because it will be interesting to see where he will be interred. And because the team have worked for so long on this, it would be great to see it come to fruition.

I would love it to be true! But, I can't get too excited yet. Not that I'm a historical nerd or anything....

I think........anticipation......no

And whilst we are at it I think old rich has been hard done by in history.

I saw him played by Kevin Spacey last year...he did him justice! Although given it was the Shakespeare play he still was a tad evil...but that was just ol billy trying to appease the Tudors!

Yes! Because I want it to be him so badly I've convinced myself it is. What an amazing find either way.

Willy Wobbledagger has a lot to answer for.

I do wonder what happened to the princes in the tower, and why their mother stayed in corrispondance with R the 3rd if he was supposed to have offed them.
