DNA will be extracted from the bones and tested against descendants of Richard's family.Dr Turi King, who is leading the DNA analysis, said: "It is extremely exciting and slightly nerve-wracking."We have extracted teeth from the skull, so we have that and a femur, and we are optimistic we will get a good sample from those."The tests are expected to take about 12 weeks to complete.If their identity is confirmed, Leicester Cathedral said it would work with the Royal Household, and with the Richard III Society, to ensure the remains were treated with dignity and respect and reburied with the appropriate rites and ceremonies of the church.
I also noted something odd that they said about the female skeleton. The joints were all broken apart.No What odd circumstances led to a female being broken apart at the joints (drawing and quartering) and the buried under the floor of a church?
