Renowned Leicester artist exhibit of the reinterment of Richard III at Leicester Cathedral opens today

In the 14th century a medieval couple were laid to rest holding hands. After 700 years, archaeologists have discovered the pair during a dig to uncover a long lost chapel in Leicestershire, England.
