Archaeologists, historians and other experts at the University of Leicester told the world Monday: The bones of Richard III have been found. Interest in the discovery bridges the humanities and the sciences. Lawrence Venuti, professor of English at Temple, reminds us that "the image of Richard as a really bad man came to Shakespeare from histories written as propaganda for the winning side." Rob Kulathinal, professor of biology at Temple, says, "It's really exciting that the team used modern genomic technologies to solve a long-standing historic question."
