Documentary Sunday – Richard III, The New Evidence

04 Oct

October 2 marked Richard III’s birthday, and this caught my eye when it played on the History Channel that day.

When Richard III’s body was uncovered in Leicester in 2012, it was discovered that the king actually did have a curve to his spine, but unlike what Shakespeare portrayed, the curve went sideways.  This led a group of scientists to test how the curve would have affected his day to day life, as seen below.
