Bone fragment 'could be King Alfred or son Edward'


www.bbc.co.uk said:

A fragment of pelvis bone unearthed in Winchester in 1999 may belong to King Alfred the Great or his son Edward the Elder, academics have said.

It was found at a previous dig at Hyde Abbey and has been dated to 895-1017 - the era the king died.

Oh my goodness! How exciting!! I was just reading a book about this time period.

“In other centuries, human beings wanted to be saved, or improved, or freed, or educated. But in our century, they want to be entertained. The great fear is not of disease or death, but of boredom. A sense of time on our hands, a sense of nothing to do. A sense that we are not amused.”

King Alfred was a bone fragment?








I'll never understand all the weirdness surrounding royal families.
