It will be interesting to see what the experts come up with. So much was destroyed in past centuries in England because of religious differences.

York is contesting Richard's reburial at Leichester. They want to bring Richard to York. Interesting to see who gets him. Noted and Thank you.

Well, that's serendipity for you. You start with digging in Leicester for a lost king, find his bones and get another coffin thrown in as a bonus. An now this turns out to be more of a mystery. This'll keep us going for weeks to come.
