Castle: Body found in knight's grave hunt

11 posts in this topic

Human remains, found at a stately home in Cornwall, are thought to be those of the man who built it.

Sir James Tillie, who built Pentillie Castle in 1698, instructed his staff to place him in a chair with his pipe when he died.

The instructions were followed before he was removed, but no burial information has ever been found.

Archaeologists who examined a mausoleum built in 1713, upon his death, said a body had been found in a vault.

Yes; he chose his resting place very well. It's where he wanted to spend eternity, so let the poor man's bones rest in peace.

Well I think, that they should see what are his books about, maybe he has something we don't know now, some "secret books" or some long lost ones. Ofcourse if they are still readable. Then after reading/scanning all of them, put that back and bury him as he wanted to be buried.

That is a pretty cool story. I say let him rest, with his books.

From the article:

"Inside it a structure with leather studs and woodwork with handles on it was found, which are thought to be either a chair or coffin."

Doesn't sound very convincing to me.
