Richard III’s last moments were likely quick but terrifying, according to a new study of the death wounds of the last king of England to die in battle. But Richard III’s last moments were the stuff of legend alone, as the king’s body was lost until September 2012, when archaeologists excavated it from under a parking lot in Leicester, England. Now, a very delayed postmortem examination reveals that of nearly a dozen wounds on Richard’s body, only two were likely candidates for the fatal blow. The initial analysis of Richard III’s skeleton highlighted the king’s scoliosis and battle scars, including at least eight wounds on the skull.

If you are excited about the revival of medieval fighting arts, check out this Kickstarter by Cédric Hauteville. It’s a beautifully-shot introduction to Historical European Martial Arts, and it’s only the promo.

Note- it focuses on historical swordplay, but if the project achieves its stretch goals it can explore more of the rich martial heritage of the Western world.

For anyone who wants to see a great documentary about real sword arts and their practitioners, this is the project to back!
