King Alfred the Great
Now that they have made the discovery of Richard III's bones, archaeologists are keen to dig up King Alfred in Winchester. You will remember that the Saxon Minster where he was buried was replaced by Winchester Cathedral, courtesy of the Normans, and Alfred's body, together with that of his wife and son, was translated to Hyde Abbey, outside the city walls. When Hyde Abbey was destroyed by Henry VIII, the location of the tombs was lost but a Victorian archaeologist dug around where he thought the altar at the Abbey would have been and found some old bones which he thought were Alfred's and they now lie in an unmarked grave in St Bartholomew's churchyard. The main problem, assuming they get permission to disinter them, will be finding a descendent whose DNA can be used as a match.
