Channel 4 TV show could reveal the face of Richard III
Richard III's face could be seen for the first time in a television programme documenting the exhumation of the Greyfriars remains.
Archaeologists at the University of Leicester uncovered the deformed, battle-scarred body at the city council car park in August.
Since then it has undergone a series of tests including facial reconstruction and identification to confirm whether it is the skeleton of the former king.
The results of the facial reconstruction will be broadcast in the new year on Channel 4.

No portraits of Richard III survive from his lifetime, nor any detailed physical descriptions apart from comments on his slim build.
Philippa Langley, from the King Richard III Society, who initiated the project, said: "To be at the point of seeing what could be the face of the last warrior King of England is an exciting prospect."
