Since the discovery of the remains of Richard III and continuing excavations at the Grey Friars site in Leicester. Archeologists have now unearthed a stone coffin that may contain the remains of either William de Moton or a senior Friar of the Grey Friars order.
Wiliam de Moton died between 1356 and 1362 so a much earlier burial than Richard. The coffin is to be opened in the next few days and will be a media event.

If a man can see beyond himself and reason with all things then it's time for him to leave this earth and rise into the heavens.

Have not heard anything new yet but we learn a great deal about these people in this way so we'll see the sort of conditioning the man went through and environment he was in and injuries if any. Some knights have been found to have heavily reinforced bones on their arms from all that weapon work.
