Kent church: "Reputed to be the tomb of Richard Plantagenet"

A derelict church in Eastwell, Kent, England, may hold the final resting place of Richard Plantagenet, illegitimate son of King Richard III. A grave in St Mary's churchyard is marked with the inscription: "Reputed to be the tomb of Richard Plantagenet". Now scientists want to know the truth.

The grave of Richard's bastard son has been a local legend for centuries, and Councillor Winston Michael, who represents Eastwell and Boughton Aluph on Ashford Borough Council, believes DNA testing could prove or disprove the legend for all time.
