    I seem to remember he had his own father reburied,after his head was stuck on a spike (with Margaret of Anjou slapping his face) and then buried without ceremony.

    I think he should be buried in York as they were his greatest supporters.

    Oddly enough, despite being a Yorkie, I think I'd lean towards Leicester.

    The terms of the dig were that, if he were found, he should stay in Leicester. If York wanted to object they should have done so at that point and offered some funding.
