Richard's head goes on tour

Richard III is getting the rockstar treatment these days, and now he is scheduled to go on tour - or at least his head is. The re-constructed head, created using the king's actual skull, will go on display in Leicester, Bosworth, York, Northampton and the British Museum. The head will eventually reside at a museum dedicated to the discovery.

The skeleton of Richard III was found in 2012 beneath a car park in Leicester, England. The costumed and bewigged head was created by experts at Dundee University who used CT scans and photographs of the skull, combined with a specialist computer program, to reconstruct Richard's face.
