Thought some of you would be interested to read this....

That is cool -- but I'd be more impressed if they found Uhtred's bones.

But Deb, maybe they really are Uhtred's bones and Alfred is just taking credit for it like he did everything else (according to Uhtred)! wink

Deb - You made me laugh out loud!  When I read the first post, I immediately thought of Uhtred too!
