Archaeologists believe they may have found some of the bones of 9th century British monarch, King Alfred the Great, an important ruler during his day.  DNA tests were performed on a pelvic bone dug up at the medieval abbey in Winchester and supported this conclusion.  Read more about this story in this article from Reuters.


So, will you be heading to the UK to visit the royal bones anytime soon?

This seems to be a good year for royal discoveries; the remains of Richard III were found under a parking lot in Leicester last year.


Now if only someone could locate Jimmy Hoffa...and Judge Crater!

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
