Another (maybe) king tarmacked over. Hope they have more respect for our current queen in years to come after she is placed 6ft under.

The article is almost 12 months old. Here's what the BBC published at the time -

Quote

Graves have been discovered during an archaeological project attempting to map the resting place of King Henry I.

Radar technology used around the Reading Abbey Quarter has located graves behind the high altar of the monastery.

The discovery has been described as a "significant next step" to discovering the remains of the son of William the Conqueror.

There doesn't appear to be any updates.

33/1 13th favourites according to Bet365 - but still more likely than Leicester City's 5000/1 odds to win the Premier League in the season they won it.

I've put a quid on Huddersfield Town winning the title this year. They're currently second at the moment, so it's looking promising for me. I'm looking forward to the £2,500.
