3D Map of Richard III’s Grave

It was recently reported by Lawrence LeBlond, a reporter for Red Orbit that the recently discovered grave of Richard III was being scanned by a postgraduate researcher at Leicester’s School of Geography and further documented using close range photogrammetry. It’s quite an interesting story.

The grave of Richard III was discovered in September 2012 by Philippa Langley of the Richard III Society. Langley, who originated the search for Richard III, discovered the possible site of the humpbacked King’s burial ground underneath a car park in Leicester. After digging commenced in a small area under the car park, human remains were discovered that were believed to be those of King Richard III himself. After months of analysis, DNA testing ultimately confirmed that the bones did in fact belong to Richard III.
