Interesting Place - Leicester

Archaeologists in the UK are searching for the bones of the last Plantagenet king of England, Richard III.

(So, where are they looking? In a grand cathedral, or the grounds of a palace? No, they're searching beneath a city centre parking lot in Leicester. The car park is said to have been built over a Franciscan friary known as Greyfriars, which housed the monarch's remains after he died at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.)
