Not just in Leicester - the world, if you are interested in History.
Quite.

On the contrary, I'd say it's pretty major when a body of a King is identified that's been missing for over 500 years.

There have been discussions in Parliament over where he should be buried and that's pretty major too. It would have been nice to see him buried in York, as that's where his heart lay and where he was most admired.
Sadly rules surrounding exhumations mean he's going to be reintered in Leicester Cathedral but I totally agree with you, he should be laid to rest in York Minster, it was his "capital" city, it's where he ruled from when Prince and Yorkshire is where he grew up.
