Medieval knight found
I wish this headline read “Medieval knight found alive in Scottish hills“, sadly that’s never going to be possible!
People must have died all the time back in medieval times as we keep finding their graves now! Ok, that’s a stupid statement but it does seem that a few pinacle discoveries regarding important people from British past have been being made.
The car park funnily enough once used by the University of Edinburgh’s archaeology department was being demolished and a building for the University was going to be put up. Edinburgh is a hotbed of the past so it was thought something would be found.
Archaeologists found an important looking head stone which was decorated with signs of nobility and the nearby Adult Male skeleton is assumed to be the one that once occupied the grave. The people in the know are certain he was a noble man, likely a knight and that this is an extremely important discovery.
After King Richard III was found in a Leicester car park last summer and now a knight kids are probably going to be out with their dads jack hammers trying to smash up car parks in the hopes of finding Jesus!…. Maybe not that crazy but it’s certainly peaking the interest in archeology in the masses and who knows what;s going to be unearthed in the coming years.
This video report goes into more details about the cool Edinburgh find, much better than my lame explanations!
So, does this kind of find excite you or is it just another dead rich guy found in a car park?
