The University of Leicester team that uncovered the remains of King Richard III last year, has today returned to the car park to begin work on a new dig.
Archaeologists want to extend their excavation to discover more about a buried casket and the Church of the Grey Friars where King Richard III was buried in 1485.
The excavation team believes a 600-year-old stone coffin located at the site could hold the remains of medieval knight Sir William Moton, who is believed to have been buried there in 1362 – over a century before King Richard III.
