The poorly dug grave that held the body of King Richard III probably meant that the monarch was buried in haste. A team of U.K. archaeologists from the University of Leicester found the body in February. The king had died in battle and his body was displayed for three days at the height of summer before burial. Researchers found 10 injuries to the king's remains, including two blows to the back of the head that were probably fatal.
