Noble Friends,

Ah, how history repeats itself! Another king under the car park story is 
unfolding in Reading, England as the search begins for the lost tomb of 
Henry I, son of William the Conqueror. Henry's life and demise don't 
quite pack the emotional punch of Richard I, and the site around the 
ruins of Reading Abbey was the legitimate and honored place for the 
Royal Burial, but it the search is sure to catch the attention of the 
world if the bones are found:

Still among the missing: Edmund of East Anglia, possibly buried under 
tennis courts; James IV of Scotland, taken to London in 1513 and vanished.

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, That Crazy Scot
