Richard III's new visitor centre on the site where his remains were discovered opens

The grave of King Richard III, immortalised by Shakespeare as one of history's great villains, was opened up to the public on Saturday in central England. The remains of the infamous ruler were found in 2012 under a car park in the city of Leicester. Around a hundred visitors were on hand to watch city mayor Peter Soulsby cut the ribbon on the £4 million ($6.8 million, 5 million euro) new visitor centre at the discovery site. Early arrivals at the building, in an abandoned school close to Richard's grave, were able to examine a replica of his skeleton made using a 3D printer. One floor guides visitors through the epic story of the king's life and brutal death in the 1485 Battle of Bosworth that ended the War of the Roses, the 32-year conflict between two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet. Another tells of the momentous and painstaking work carried out by

Ukraine rebels go to the museum: To steal World War II tanks and two howitzers

Visiting a museum may be the last thing on the minds of hardened insurgents in east Ukraine, but a group of them turned up at one in Donetsk -- only to make off with a World War II tank and two howitzers. "They had written authorisation to take them away," said a bewildered guard from his sentry post outside the immense World War II museum in the insurgent-held city. "They loaded them into a big truck. They took the tank that was least damaged. I think they're going to use them to fight," he said, refusing to give his name. When an AFP journalist visited the museum Friday there were still markings on the ground from where the separatist fighters had revved up their vintage loot and made off. A father and son -- the only visitors to the normally bustling complex -- gaped on in disbelief. "Can you believe it? They're even stealing

Childhood 'behaviour book' reveals the conduct of the future Queen Victoria, aged 12

Often 'very good', occasionally 'rather impertinent' and sometimes 'very naughty' – all descriptions of 12-year-old Queen Victoria from a previously unseen 'behaviour book', one of over 100 items from 250 years of royal childhood that went on display this month at the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace (26 July – 28 September 2014). Written in Princess Victoria’s own hand, probably under the command of her German governess, Baroness Lehzen, the behaviour book records the 12-year-old’s daily conduct, ranging from ‘very good’ to ‘very naughty’. It reveals that although the Princess was largely well behaved, like any child she was occasionally mischievous and broke the rules. Among the many 'goods' and 'very goods' in the week of 3 November 1831, the young Princess also notes that she had been 'very thoughtless and foolish' and 'impertinent'. The

Jewish museums in Norway close after imminent terrorist attack by jihadists coming from Syria

Jewish museums in Norway remained closed to the public on Friday, the day after Norway stepped up security as it announced a possible imminent terrorist attack by jihadists coming from Syria. The Jewish community seems like a probable target for Islamist militants who have fought in the war-torn country, as underscored by the deadly attack on Brussels' Jewish Museum in May. "We are closed until Sunday," Oslo Jewish Museum education head Vidar Paulsen told AFP. "It's a preventive measure we're taking in light of the shooting in Brussels." The museum should reopen on Tuesday, since it is usually closed on Mondays. "That's what is expected for now. We will decide later," Paulsen added. According to Norwegian news agency NTB, the Jewish Museum of Trondheim, in western Norway, will also remain closed until

Museo Reina Sofia shows largest retrospective held to date of the work of Richard Hamilton

Madrid is hosting the largest retrospective held to date on the British artist Richard Hamilton. The exhibition, organized by the Reina Sofía, was designed specifically for the Madrid museum by Hamilton himself, who became directly involved with the work when he visited the city in the early months of 2010. The exhibition on view at the Museo Reina Sofía includes some 270 works created in the course of more than sixty years (1949 to 2011), and shows both the extraordinary variety of media, techniques and genres that characterizes Hamilton’s production, and the importance, influence and relevance of his revolutionary work. It is curated by Vicente Todolí and Paul Schimmel. This is the last project in which this pioneer of Pop Art and prophet of postmodernism was directly involved before his death in September 2011. A large part of the show – about 160 works was on
