The bones of King Alfred the Great are believed to have been found in a box stored in a museum, and not buried in an unmarked grave as previously thought.

Researchers believe a pelvis bone, which has been in storage at Winchester City Museum, could belong to the king Alfred.

However, there is a chance that the bone could belong to his son, Edward the Elder, instead.
King Alfred the Great's bones discovered inside a MUSEUM: Remains inside box are thought to belong to Anglo-Saxon ruler | Mail Online

And here's another article from The Telegraph, just incase anyone's interested:

Quote:
The first remains of King Alfred the Great may have been found at last after tests on a pelvic bone unearthed in Winchester revealed it belonged to either the Anglo-Saxon King or his son Edward.
But after a high-profile excavation of an unmarked grave where the Anglo-Saxon King was believed to be buried, the location of the bone was much more mundane - a storage box in the bowels of a local museum.
Archaeologists from the University of Winchester had initially analysed six skeletons excavated from a grave at St Bartholomew's Church, the historic site of Hyde Abbey, last March.

An outstanding programme. No hype just sound investigation of Alfreds resting places. Also a good descriptionof thecontributionhe made to create England.

If you have the opportunity to see it, then I can strongly recommend it.

Thanks Cepe,yes I saw it & highly enjoyed it,the programme was also very well researched.It seems that there are plans to excavate further on the site where Hyde Abbey once stood,perhaps they might find some more royal bones!
