Removing a Tooth for DNA Analysis

Dr Turi King from the University of Leicester’s Department of Genetics and Dr Jo Appleby from the University’s School of Archaeology and Ancient History carefully extract a tooth from the skull of a body found under a Leicester car park in September 2012. The tooth will provide ancient DNA that will subsequently identify the body as that of King Richard III.
