The skeleton, with what appears to be a fearsome battle wound in the skull and a contorted spine, will be shown to the media for the first time, though the university insists it will be done "with dignity and respect".
The daily rate for a Leicester NCP car park is £18.50. #RichardIII has been there 192,649 days. He owes £3,564,006.50 in parking fees.
"Looking at Speede's map, he had misidentified Greyfriars, which was actually the separate Blackfriars. He was looking in the wrong place."
Pulmonary symptoms such as shortness of breath, not leading to premature death, may be associated with idiopathic scoliosis. These curves are usually larger, greater than 80° Cobb or with increased rotation, and usually single thoracic curves. Large double curves may also be associated with shortness of breath . ...
At an average of 40.5 years after skeletal maturity 68% of the 133 curves in 102 patients in the Iowa series progressed . Curves initially 30°or less tended not to progress whereas curves more than 30° usually progressed. ...
Compared to controls untreated adolescent idiopathic scoliosis does not result in an increased mortality rate. However, it may on rare occasion progress to the point of causing death by cor pulmonale. The rate of dyspnea is slightly increased and is associated with thoracic curves of greater than 80°. Most patients with untreated adolescent idiopathic scoliosis function at or near normal levels, even though pain is more prevalent. Self image is often slightly diminished. Mental health is usually normal.
It's also worth pointing out that, if anyone was sufficiently motivated, Richard's mother and grandmother (and no doubt further back) were both buried in well marked and documented tombs. I don't know if entombment is much less preservative than burial in earth, but there are probably available sources of mitocondrial DNA out there that would give a pretty definitive comparison. Cecily Neville had quite a few male children, but they either didn't live to adulthood and so wouldn't match this skeleton, or are otherwise accounted by having their burial places known.
Just to clarify, images of the facial reconstruction will be shown on tonight's Channel Four documentary. The press conference tomorrow will be its first public appearance before the media.
As soon as possible after the press conference we will post photos of the reconstruction on this Facebook page.
