Resurrecting Richard III (#1306) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Richard is considered the most evil king to have ruled England - and a fearsome warrior as well, despite the extreme curvature of his spine. Now, scientists are testing the bones to find out more about the king and also conducting experiments to determine whether Richard could have fought so ferociously in battle with such a severe deformity.
