A Royal Armouries' curator formed part of an expert academic team investigating the "skeleton in the car park" discovery - which has now been confirmed as the the human remains of Richard III.
Historians and scientists have conducted a barrage of scientific studies on the bones, discovered in a local council car park last September.
Since its excavation the Greyfriars' skeleton has been studied for four months by a number of different specialists, working in in diverse areas such as DNA testing, carbon-dating, dental tests to establish diet, osteology and forensic pathology.
The Leeds museum's Curator of European Edged Weapons, Bob Woosnam-Savage, was invited to join the Greyfriars' research team by the University of Leicester. Since then, specialists have spent four months working to see if the skeleton belongs to Richard III - who died at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.
The findings were unveiled today at a press conference. The scientific investigation - the focus of worldwide academic and media interest - began when a skeleton was excavated during an archaeological project at the former site of Greyfriars Church, in Leicester.
It was believed the church was the final resting place of the last Plantagenet king, Richard III, who had been buried there in August 1485, after his defeat by Henry VII, father of Henry VIII.
After the bones were excavated, Bob Woosnam-Savage's role was to use his expertise and knowledge of medieval weapons to examine trauma to the skeleton - and to try to establish how the individual met his violent death.
