A hearse, a hearse, my kingdom for a hearse.
Now to move on the other fascinating disappearance of British history: find the bodies of the Princes in the Tower. What did Richard do (or have done) to them?
It'd be interesting to find out how they found his living descendant. It's tough to find records that go that far back that are unbroken for a family tree.
Cool. Much more fun to read about than bogus gun control. hysteria and our many TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT!
So the burial site next to the church was paved over since none had any records of someone buried there? Wow. Hard to believe they would put a parking lot on top of vacant land.
It's remarkable that from the time the church was abandoned in 1538, the burial site was never disturbed. All the local records show that it was always someone's garden, back yard, school playground,and finally a parking lot. 537 years in the middle of a lot of human building activity.
Great story! Still a very controversial guy, hundreds of years later.
