Top news stories of 2013?
I’ve scanned a number of lists of “top news of 2013,” but to my surprise, none of the ones I looked at included what was undoubtedly one of the most important stories of 2013: the discovery of Richard III’s remains under a parking lot in Leicester.
Seriously, this story will undoubtedly become a staple of books on British history. How can any future history of the War of the Roses – or of British middle ages – not include the story of the discovery of his remains in Leicester?
Now maybe this showed up on some “top stories of 2013” list, but how did it miss most of the lists?
