The lifestyle changes of Richard III

Everyone knows Richard III was king of England, however briefly, but did he live a royal lifestyle? Researchers say yes. A new study shows that the king's location and diet changed after his ascendance to the throne.

The study, involving isotope analysis of bone and tooth material, was published in Elsevier's Journal of Archaeological Science. Dr Angela Lamb, Isotope Geochemist and lead author of the paper says, "The chemistry of Richard III's teeth and bones reveal changes in his geographical movements, diet and social status throughout his life." A documentary on the subject was created for British television's Channel 4.
