LONDON—Archeologists are stunned after a historic discovery is made in the ground underneath a parking lot.

British scientists announced a skull found in central England under a parking lot is that of Richard III.

The University of Leicester released a photograph ahead of the big announcement.

King Richard III died in 1485 and was believed to be buried in the choir of Leicester’s Greyfriars Church.

However, the precise location of his remains was lost throughout the years.

Archaeologists found the body of a man buried beneath a parking lot last year.

The scientists say DNA tests confirm “beyond a reasonable doubt” that the bones belong to the long-lost king.

Richard III was made famous to later generations in Shakespeare’s play entitled “Richard the Third.”
