How wonderful. I enjoyed the biography of Princess Alice by Vickers. It would be incredible to be able to see her tomb in the church. She greatly admired the religious devotion of her aunts, Empress Alexandra and Grand Duchess Elizabeth.

Search for the remains of James I of Scotland?

James I of Scotland and his queen were buried at Scotland's only Carthusian Priory in Perth,it was known as the Charterhouse.It was founded in 1429 by King James I,he was buried there in 1437 and his queen,Joan Beaufort was interred in 1445.Margaret Tudor,widow of James IV was buried here in 1541.

Not sure that a dig (if there is to be one) would find anything,the Perth Charterhouse was attacked and destroyed by the Reformers in 1559,most of the royal remains were burnt including Margaret Tudor's .

Alfred the Great was buried at Hyde Abbey which was destroyed during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539.The burials have been disturbed several times since then,several coffins were discovered in the 1780's and were stripped of lead,the remains inside were simply dumped as per the records. Finding Alfred might well be like searching for a needle in a haystack!

I'll take anyone; I'm on an archeological buzz!

It would be great if they could identify remains after all these centuries since this is going back to 900 A.D.

As a religious person the idea of desecrating the remains of the dead out of hatred or differences in political ideology is just repugnant beyond words. As a lover of history, it's also very, very frustrating.

The story above reminds me of the desecration of the Royal tombs at St. Denis during the French Revolution.
