The grave of Richard III was found by archaeologists last autumn below a Leicester car park. (See my earlier articles by starting at http://goo.gl/Lvzs96.) His original grave apparently was hastily dug and the King was probably buried with little ceremony. His body has now been exhumed and most likely will be reburied in an appropriate location with an authentic medieval reburial service.
It seems that reburials were common during the the 15th Century and Richard III probably attended the reburial service of his own father, Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York. The reburial of Richard's father reportedly was accompanied by three sung masses and a banquet where guests dined on capons, cygnets, herons and rabbits.
