Leicester car park mystery continues

Archaeologists are puzzled by the revelation that the occupant of a lead coffin found yards from the grave of Richard III in Leicester, England might be a woman. The grave was believed to have been that of Sir William de Moton.

"If it is female – and I'm not an expert on osteology, this is just what I've been told – then it's likely it's a local benefactress," said lead archaeologist, Richard Buckley, from University of Leicester Archaeological Services. While a list of possible candidates for the identity of the woman is being studied, experts are resigned to the fact that the truth may never be known.
