The team that began the search for the resting place of Richard III has not only uncovered the church where he was believed to be buried, but now they've found bones. DNA samples have been taken and will require two to three months to test, so we can't yet say the bones are definitely Richard's, but it's nonetheless an exciting development. How will scholars verify the DNA? They'll match it against a Canadian furniture-maker who genealogists have confirmed is descended from Richard's older sister, Anne of York.
