In the monastery of the Hyde Abbey in Winchester (Hampshire County, England) a pelvic bone has been unearthed that may, according to experts, belong to either Alfred the Great, who reigned at the end of the 9th century, or his son Eduardo el Viejo.
The doctor Katie tucker, who found a set of skeletal remains in the monastery that had not been analyzed, has commented that They were found near the main altar. According to the chronicles and records, the dates of death and the age of the bones indicate that it is Alfredo el Grande or his son Eduardo el Viejo. However, there is no Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Hyde Abbey, so the remains were probably brought from Wessex, as the doctor explains in this video.
King Alfred (871-899) was proclaimed monarch of Wessex after the death of his brother, but he himself he proclaimed himself king of the Anglo-Saxons. His battles against the Vikings allowed him to earn the title of The Great, the only English monarch with such a nickname. In addition, his program of civil organization and protection of the poor raised him to the religious category of saint, being venerated by many churches.
Apparently, according to research carried out at the University of Winchester, the bones correspond to a person who died between the ages of 26 and 45. The popular search for lost monarchs from the discovery of the body of Richard III It has generated a claim by researchers for more archaeological explorations in the abbey to search for evidence that allows the remains to be reliably identified.
Romantic, in the artistic sense of the word. In my adolescence both family and friends reminded me over and over that I was an inveterate humanist, as I spent time doing what perhaps others not so much, believing myself to be Bécquer, immersed in my own artistic fantasies, in books and movies, constantly wanting to travel and explore the world, admired for my historical past and for the wonderful productions of the human being. That is why I decided to study History and combine it with Art History, because it seemed to me the most appropriate way to carry out the skills and passions that characterize me: reading, writing, traveling, researching, knowing, making known, educating. Disclosure is another of my motivations, because I understand that there is no word that has real value if it is not because it has been transmitted effectively. And with this, I am determined that everything I do in my life has an educational purpose.
