"New film footage revealing for the first time details of the potential killer blow that claimed the life of King Richard III has been released by the University of Leicester." Source: Archaeology News Network. (Whoever wrote that sentence needs to be slapped around a little).
Note: Richard was probably killed during the Battle of Bosworth Field by "a major sharp force trauma to the base of the skull, which was probably inflicted by a sword or the top spike of a bill [Medieval polearm] or halberd."
Richard's grave, a really spectacular find, was discovered in 2012.
